This is likely timeout based - JbossAS7 is the most time consuming cartridge to configure.

Worked on this with Rajat. We were able to reproduce this using a direct request against the production broker using a curl command. This suggested that the problem was not in the rhc client tools.

Rajat and Ram ran with this and found the source of the problem: we are using Amazon's Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) with our production broker, and ELB has a 60-second timeout: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?threadID=33427&start=50&tstart=50

In the long term, the broker and rhc client tools should be modified to handle the app creation process with multiple discrete actions:

1. User uses rhc client tools to request a new app
2. Broker responds with a ticket and kicks off the app creation
3. User can 'check in' with the ticket to monitor app creation progress
4. When the app is ready, user can use the ticket to set up the git clone

(User stories to this effect already exist in our backlog)

This approach makes an issue like a 60-second timeout unimportant to the implementation, and will ensure that the process works for ever-larger app setups.

In the meantime, we need to find another way to work around ELB's 60-second limit.

sorry; that's mwoodson.

I have disabled the AWS ELB.  openshift.redhat.com is now round robin between our two proxy nodes. 

This will fix the ELB timeout problem.
