Currently, publishing of large SharePoint Form library may result in 'Updating Content Type Failed' message. According to this article, it mention that increasing the web service timeout to larger than 30 seconds.

So, how do I set this setting at which part of the SharePoint Server?


{Root Drive}:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories{Web Application Port} in that directory you will find web.config file, you should be able to change time out values in that xml file

their are lots of timeout properties so you will have to experiment with each one to find the one you are looking for.

you can also change things like message sizes etc

Kind Regards
