When accessing NFA using IP Address or Host Name you may get a 500 error. There will be no additional details. However when you add “/ra” and the end the page loads fine.

If you look at IIS logging you will find a “ASP_0164_:_80004005” error which is an “Invalid_TimeOut_Value” issue.



NFA 9.1.0 and later.



This error occurs because ASP timeouts cannot exceed 1440 minutes (1 day).  The setting change must be made in NFA 9.1+ in the SSO tool.



     1.   On the NFA Console Server navigate to the <installdir\Portal\SSO\bin>.

     2.   Double click the SsoConfig.exe tool.

     3.   Choose “2” > “4” > “2” > “6” > “U” > Enter in a value of “1440” or less (20 is default) then press enter.

     4.   Restart the “CA Performance Center SSO” Service and do an “IISRESET”.
