Environment

Release : 9.2.0

Component : UIM - IBMVM

Resolution

1. Ensure that HMC does not have a timeout configure for the designated probe user id.

2. If the designated probe user id does not have a timeout configured, increase the http_timeout from default setting, 300, in the ibmvm_rest.cfg in the setup section.
Example, increase from 300 (5 minutes) to 600 (10 minutes)
