Description Thomas Hauser 2014-07-24 15:44:50 UTC
Description of problem:
Applies to all installers:

Currently the amount of time the installer waits for the user's server to start up is hardcoded. In many use cases, it would be valuable to be able to specify the TIMEOUT at runtime, in case the uesr's machine is quite slow.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Another option might be to allow the user to cancel it instead if they don't want to wait for it to finish and not have a time out at all.

Comment 3 Thomas Hauser 2014-08-21 19:43:34 UTC
This overriding of the server timeout is added and present in DV ER1. The other products will also inherit this functionality.

Comment 4 Thomas Hauser 2014-08-21 19:51:57 UTC

java -jar <installer> -variables override.server.timeout=<new value in seconds>
