Auto Apply Driver Timeout
The client appears to have a 8 min timeout for waiting for the Server to reply with available drivers. The server continues after this timeout and can still deliver results but the client has already failed the step.
Allow the 8 min timeout to be configurable.
Updating to completed. SCCM 1702 is now available, see here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1702 for more details
Thanks for the all the feedback and suggestions
