changing timeout for HP OO operations

One of our flows runs a command on a unix server that takes some time to complete. Generally only a minute or so, but sometimes it may take two or three. It is important that this command be finished before moving forward in the work flow.

I read in the author's guide that you can add an input to an ssh operation called op-timeout that will allow you to specify the timeout length in ms, but I have not been able to get this to work. I created a small flow that will connect to one of our servers and run date;sleep 180;date with an op-timeout value of 200000. I expect to get two date strings three minutes apart after three minutes, but I am only getting the first one after two minutes. This would imply that the new timeout value is not being applied. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Re: changing timeout for HP OO operations

I have found the problem! The manual says to use an input named op-timeout, but you actually need to use op_timeout. I hope this typo will be fixed in future versions.
