SOAP Exception while installing application to WebSphere with wsadmin

Posted by Unknown on 11:43 AM with No comments
When deploying (larger) applications to WebSphere with wsadmin scripting some times a SOAP Exception occurs. This is due to a low default SOAP timeout. wsadmin uses internally SOAP to communicate with the WebSphere instance.

Exception message:
WASX7017E: Exception received while running file "<your-path>\";
exception information:
[wsadmin] Caused by: [SOAPException: faultCode=SOAP-ENV:Client;
msg=Read timed out;
Read timed out]

To increase the timeout locate the soap.client.props file of your locale and remote profile and set the to a higher value
# SOAP Request Timeout
# - timeout (specified in seconds [default 180], 0 implies no timeout)
