While creating a scratch org i get the following error.

ERROR running force:org:create:  Socket timeout occurred while listening for results. 

Try this: 
Use command "sfdx force:data:soql:query -q "SELECT Status FROM ScratchOrgInfo WHERE Id='2SR1n000000L1XcGAK'"" to retry. You may consider increasing --wait parameter value to increase timeout.
11:13:58.529 sfdx force:org:create -f config/project-scratch-def.json --setalias test --durationdays 7 --setdefaultusername ended with exit code 1

If i visit the record Id provided in the Devhub the ScratchOrg has a status New and the ScratchOrgId is empty.

Somehow it doesn't become active.

How can I investigate what is going wrong and is there a way I can fix this?

  • Are you working under a client network having corporate firewall? Error message in this post seems related. – Raul May 14 '19 at 10:10
  • No firewall. If I use a devhub with the trailhead examples I don't have this issue. – Michael Hardenbol May 14 '19 at 10:54

It seems that the permission set for using our Devhub was not properly configured. A permission set should at least have the following: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.sfdx_setup.meta/sfdx_setup/sfdx_setup_add_users.htm
