Timeout is exceeeded even though it is set to unlimited in the action parameters.

Environment

Release Automation 6.x agent on Linux/Unix

Resolution

Follow instructions as listed in http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21308292

The timeout in the action only designates how long the action itself is allowed to wait until the start operation finishes. 
But the timeout as designated by com.ibm.SOAP.requestTimeout is the time WebSphere itself allows the request to take. 
So just leave the timeout in the action set to 0 but modify the com.ibm.SOAP.requestTimeout to 6000 within was_profile_root/properties/soap.client.properties.
