MED-V 1.0: Error: Initial Handshake with Workspace failed.
When you attempt to launch a MED-V workspace you may get the following error:
Error: Initial Handshake with Workspace failed.
This is caused by the the handshake timeout failure. The default value may be set too low for the MED-V RTM release (build 126.96.36.199).
For MED-V SP1 (Build 188.8.131.52) the default value has been doubled. As a workaround for v1, check the timeout setting in the clientsettings.XML. The InitialHandshakeMaxTimeout value in the ClientSett The RTM build will have this value empty meaning it is using the default (30.) You can modify this setting by placing this entry below the <Client> node.
Here is the settings placement inside the XML file:
