Resolution

Both download and inventory run tasks timeouts can be changed from unlimited time to a specific time. This is done via the agent registry setting:

add RequiredLimit DWORD(time in minutes) HKLM\\Software\\Altiris\\Altiris Agent\\Plugin Objects\\Agents\\SMFAgent

 

notes:

1. minimum time for Inventory Rule task timeout is 10 minutes

2. minimum time for Download task timeout is 30 minutes

3. this is a limit PER part of the Task. For example the detection check has a timeout limit, then the download has a timeout limit, and the execution as well. The duration of the timeout starts over for each part.
