ESET Era Virtual Appliance – Losing Client Connections

Again another quick post more for my notes than anything, had a few issues with the ESET ERA 6 Appliance losing connections from the clients, basically the clients connection time goes over the policy you have set.

A restart of the appliance gets it up and running for so long but then it will happen again, advice from ESET is to deploy a new appliance but i decided to try a few things first.

What worked for me –

Enter the console

Edit MySQL configuration (/etc/my.cnf) –

vi /etc/my.cnf

Then add the following to theĀ [mysqld] section


The timeout value can be adjusted all the way up to 3600.
