Command to Increase node image download timeout

I am trying to upgrade one of our clusters at a remote location half way across the world. We do not have a big pipe nor there is a local server/resource I can use to get the image locally. The image download to the nodes fails with the following error. I want to try increasing the timeout value from 45 minutes to 60 minutes but my search came up empty for the command.

 

Do you know what the command would be to increase this timeout value?

Re: Command to Increase node image download timeout

Hi there,

 

Unfortunately this timeout is not configurable. You will need a webserver with better connectivity.

 

If this is a common issue, I suggest getting a raspberry pi, loading a webserver and the image onto it,  and then configuring it for DHCP or for a local static address, and then couriering it to the remote location.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Command to Increase node image download timeout

Thank you Alex! I was able to get the image loaded after a couple of retries. But I will keep what you suggested in mind for the future.
