CM Ticker App Timeout Issue

Hi everyone,

I installed Config Mgr Ticker app in our environment.
But while generating a new announcement for a Collection a timeout occurs after one minute:


I tried to create announcement on our Primary Site Server (we have no CAS) and with "Full Admin" Rights.

The CM-collection currently has just one member.
Here are the recent contents of the CiresonTickerAdmin.log:

    Does it eventually get posted? I know normally it does, and it is just an issue with the site server being busy, and thus Policy Provider not completing in the timeframe we're monitoring. If it doesn't complete in time, we don't stop it, and it usually then posts later when Policy Provider does respond.

    There is a Registry key that you can change to control the time we wait for Policy Provider. It is:
    HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Cireson\ConfigMgr Apps\Ticker App\Max Policy Wait Time

    You can set it to a higher number of seconds to see if Policy Provider responds in time then. If not, then check the policypv.log on the site server to see if it reports any issues when you create an announcement.
