SnapCreator throws an timeout error on listing volumes or snapshots

It is so easy to do an oracle restore with NetApp SnapCreator but what happens if the listing of the snapshots for the restore running in a timeout?

This is because there are too many volumes or snapshot and the listing takes longer than the expected 2 minutes.

Just change the option

SNAPCREATOR_ENGINE_READ_TIMEOUT=300000

in the snapcreator.properties file to 5 minutes for example (5 minutes = 300000ms) and restart the SnapCreator service. The default is 120000ms = 2 minutes.
