HP Support has released knowledge base article (KM00228735) to deal with Tasks that timeout on PC 11.5 and higher. The problem is encountered when a health check on a Host machine fails with the following error message
“Failure Timeout: Task with ID <xxxx> has failed to finish during the expected time.”
The task will be marked as a failed task.
This is usually a problem with a service not running on the host, or having incorrect permissions on the host. First, check all the services to ensure they are running. Check for these specific services:
- Remote Management Agent Service
- Performace Center Loadtesting Service
If all the services are running, the same error remains, perform the following:
- Right click on each service–> properties–> Logon tab–>
- Ensure Local system account is selected
- Ensure that “Allow service to interact with desktop” is selected
If these steps do not solve your problem, contact HP support directly.
