This configuration parameter specifies the number of seconds the local client should wait for a response from the agent before ending a requested operation.

In most cases, you set this configuration parameter using group policy. You can, however, set it manually in the configuration file if you are not using group policy or want to temporarily override group policy.

If you are manually setting this parameter, the parameter value must be an integer greater than zero. The following example sets the inactive client timeout to 5 minutes:

lrpc.timeout: 300

If this parameter is not defined in the configuration file, its default value is 5 minutes.

Although in some environments increasing or decreasing the value of this parameter may be beneficial to optimize agent operations and Active Directory for your network topology, you should take care in changing this setting. For example, in most cases, you should not decrease this value because of the potential problems it may cause when transferring data. If you set this value too low and have a slow connection or a large amount of data to be transferred, the local client may end the operation prematurely and prevent the data transfer from completing successfully.
