You can increase the time setting for update if the default setting for synchronising databases is too short for your environment.

Problem

The timeout setting for the Vcac-Config SynchronizeDatabases command is not sufficient for some environments where synchronising databases takes longer than the default value of 3600 seconds.

The cafeTimeoutInSeconds and cafeRequestPageSize property values in the Vcac-Config.exe.config file govern the communication between the API and the Vcac-config.exe utility tool. The file is at IaaS installation location\VMware\vCAC\Server\Model Manager Data\Cafe\Vcac-Config.exe.config.

You can override the default timeout value just for the SynchronizeDatabases command by supplying a value for these optional parameters.

Parameter

Short Name

Description

--DatabaseSyncTimeout

-dstm

Sets the http request timeout value only for SynchronizeDatabases in seconds.

--DatabaseSyncPageSize

-dsps

Sets the sync request page size only for Reservation or Reservation Policy synchronization. The default is 10.

If these parameters are not set in the Vcac-Config.exe.config file, the system uses the default timeout value.
