If you attempt an ascp transfer over a network with high latency or to/from storage with slow read/write, you may receive a message similar to the following:
ERR Failed to receive Close Session, read timed out (errno=110) timeout:120, rsize=0
To increase the timeout, follow these steps:
<default> <session_timeout_sec>time</session_timeout_sec> </default>
where time is the desired time in seconds before timeout. Save your changes.
