Jul 4, 2011

I am on CENTOS 5.4 64 Bit Servers.

I have created a script which runs some commands on remote servers.

I am stucked when a server is not responding timely.

I want to set a timeout say after 10 seconds, if I am unable to login (for whatever reason) I should be dropped back at the shell.

I tried using LoginGraceTime but it is not working for me as below:

Ubuntu :: Windows 7 Boot Selector Timeout?

Jun 24, 2010

So I'm dual booting Windows 7 and Lucid. Thinking I might shorten the timeout for the bootloader (I apologize if my terminology's off), I ran bcdedit and changed the timeout to 0. Little did I know this would prevent my computer from booting into either operating system.

I've got Lucid running off a live cd now; does anyone know how I could change the timeout back from there (or any other way!) and get my laptop working again?

Ubuntu :: Change Windows Boot Manager Timeout=0?

Dec 13, 2010

I installed last ubuntu from windows 7 using wubi and it worked great, i am writing this from ubuntu. The problem is I changed the timeout to 0 on windows 7 startup options as well default operating system to ubuntu, so now i cannot boot to windows because the windows 7 boot manager just flashes and goes directly to the grub boot manager and even if try to choose windows 7 on grub boot manager it only goes back to windows 7 boot manager and the same thing happens.

I have no DVD drive and i only have a 1Gigabyte USB PEN.

I already searched insanely on ubuntu forums, used unebooting, tried creating a windows 7 startup disk with unebooting, tried formating USB PEN with GLParted and choosing FAT32, ex3, NTSF as well with boot flag and then copying files to usb, wich didnt work. I tried to fix it with SUPER GRUB DISK didnt work too....

Is there anyway i can change this little timeout setting from windows 7 boot partition (yes i really learned something) so i can boot to windows 7? By whatever method, it can be from within ubuntu or using a 1Gb pen?

I know it can only be changed using bcdedit.exe but not even with wine it worked.

Hardware :: Cannot Boot From SATA Disk - Timeout 10

Jun 17, 2010

I have a problem to boot from a SATA disk. The filesystem image was created by our customer and copied to the SATA disk. It is SLES 10.2. When booting, "waiting for /dev/sda2 to appear" appears. The filesystem seems not to be corrupted, it can be mounted via a live CD. Here are the files I consider being useful for you.

Ubuntu :: Grub Boot Loader Menu - Remove Or Timeout?

Feb 28, 2011

I have been unable to locate an answer to the below.Just installed 10.10 server and noticed that during boot each time the Grub Menu pops up. I have to manually press a key on my keyboard each time to get through this menu. This is a big problem as this is going to be administered remotely. here is my /boot/grub/grub.cfg file

# It is automatically generated by grub-mkconfig using templates[code].......

Now, It seems to me that with the settings above that menu should time out after a few seconds but it is not. I must press enter each time.how I can get this damn thing to timeout after a few seconds?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3: Where To Adjust X11 Timeout Parameter Affecting Boot

Mar 13, 2011

Computer boots up fine, but drops to commandline as it tries to go to the desktop. Just logging in and issuing "startx" brings up the desktop and all is well.

The Xorg logfile gives no fatals or clues (at least to me), but the "warn" file in /var/log gives the following at the end:

Mar 13 13:25:43 xxxxxxxx kdm[2328]: X server startup timeout, terminating
Mar 13 13:25:43 xxxxxxxx kdm[2328]: X server for display :0 can't be started, session disabled

Yesterday was fine, and never had it before; no harware changes (still same ATI 4770 and ATI 11.2 driver), nor BIOS changes/updates, for ages. First boot today this started. Does it continuously.

how I might slightly increase X's timeout parameter a bit, if this is the problem?

Fedora :: Boot Failed With The Message "TFTP Open Timeout"

Sep 7, 2011

Since I upgrade our cluster from the FC14 to the FC15 I have a bad problem with the tftpd server. I have some thinstations booting over the network after the update the boot failed with the message "TFTP open timeout". I use an "ip alias" (cluster adress) for the tftp server (next-server in the dhcp), when I use the real ip I have no problem. I found some information about a "Service Guard environment" and an option to enable it:

"This option is required for some tftp clients. These clients reject the tftp reply received from a different IP address than the one requested when the server?s interface is configured with an alias IP address." I do not see an option like that in the tftpd server of the FC15.

Ubuntu :: No Timeout On Grub 11.04?

Jul 30, 2011

Im trying to run a headless box but grub has no time out so it sits until I plug in a keyboard and hit enter. I have tried to put a timer on using 'startup-manager' but this seems to be ignored.

When it boots I get GNU GRUB version 1.99~rc1-13ubuntu13 and a list of operating systems. Unless I hit enter it will wait forever.

Ubuntu :: KNode Timeout On Server?

Apr 23, 2011

My KNode gets a 'timeout on server' when loading newsgroups. I've read that you should tweak the server timeout (settings -> configure knode -> accounts newsgroupserver -> edit -> server timeout). However, when I try this out the properties window of my news server has no 'server timeout'. What can I do now?

(KNode version 4.4.8, KDE version 4.4.5)

General :: Get Ping Timeout Below 1 Second?

Mar 30, 2011

I have a web application that runs through thousands of IP addresses and checks if they're online. Basically, if a server uses more than 250ms to respond, it's considered offline in our case. It would be an enormous timesaver if we could get the ping command to give up after about 300 ms, instead of what seems to be the minimum value of the -W parameter, 1 second.

Networking :: How Long Before TCP Ack's Timeout

Oct 13, 2010

I'm trying to get granular with TCP, one of the answers I can't seem to find is. When a client server connection is lost without closing, how many duplicate ack's are sent until the session is closed. I've kind of figured out the the sender will continue to retransmit a segment for about 9 mins if not Ack'd. going from 1.5,3,6,12,24,48 and the continuing with 64 seconds up to around 9 minutes before is resets the session. but whats happening at the other end.?

Networking :: Specify A Value For Forwarders Timeout?

Apr 26, 2011

I have a named server that has forwarders setup. Quite often the dns server where I forward would not respond right away and the query would fail. It would then also cache the empty result for 3 hours and I would need to restart the service or clear the cache. how would I be able to specify a value for forwarders timeout, just like on Windows DNS.

Software :: Why Does Getnameinfo Get Timeout

Feb 17, 2011

When an application invokes getnameinfo, it seems that it takes a while.

Internally, os sends a request to dns server and waits for a response, but the response is timeout after 5 seconds.

1. why does the response take so long?

2. is the timeout value configurable? if yes, what will it impact if the value is changed and where to change this value?

3. is there other way to find out domain name by ip address?
