SYMPTOMS

When you perform a scan job in Microsoft Antigen 9.0 for Exchange or in Sybari Antigen 8.0 for Microsoft Exchange, the scan job is not completed successfully. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

Timeout occurred while scanning.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the scan job took too long to scan and timed out. Typically, after you receive this error message, the scan job is stopped and then restarted within ten seconds.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, use one of the following methods.

Method 1: Increase the time-out values for the scan job

You can modify the registry to increase the time-out values for the scan job. To do this, follow these steps.

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

  6. Click Decimal, type 300000 in the Value data box, and then click OK.

    Note This value represents the time-out in milliseconds. A value of 300000 is five minutes. By default, if this registry entry is not present, the value is 120000 (two minutes).
