Lately I have been struggling with a timeout issue for a customer on the Enterprise Portal for Dynamics AX 2009.
I ended up doing two things – here are my experiences:
I will not claim to have a bulletproof solution but there are things that You might want to try
- In the AX client navigate to administration—>setup—>internet—>Enterprise Portal—>Parameters
You could try to increase the values for timeout and history and see how that plays out for you.
- Another approach could be to increase the session timeout for the AX website in IIS. In order to do that you will have to do two things…
Find the web.config file for your ax site. The path may look something similar to this C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80 – but ofcourse this may vary depending on your installation structure.
In the configsections (in the top section of the web.config) you will have to add
<section name="Session" type="System.Configuration.SingleTagSectionHandler, System, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />
<Session Timeout="120" />
Thanks to my collegue Martin Lindhoff Lysgaard for input and assistance.
