When running Siteminder/SSO FSSUI or AdminUI, user attempts to modify a policy by clicking on Add/remove. In the User tab the following message appears:
“Search operation failed: timed out”
AdminUI and FSSUI on Windows.
The default objects allowed by Siteminder/SSO is too low.
** Example: Suppose that a realm has 60 sub-realms as nested. By default, all nested realms are displayed in Object Panel and List Panel of SiteMinder Administrator UI.
Increase the MaxObjects allowed in the Policy Server registry:
1. Open your registry: Start > type regedit.exe in the search field and Run
2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Netegrity\Siteminder\CurrentVersion\ObjectStore
3. Set MaxObjects= 0x64; REG_DWORD (100)
** Increase this value as needed but 0x64 should be enough to resolve this issue.
