Fix Recommendation

Change the timeout value by editing the webclient.properties file.

On the system where vCenter is installed, locate the webclient.properties file.

Windows: C:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenter Server\cfg\vsphere-client

Edit the file to include the line "session.timeout = 10" where 10 is the timeout value in minutes. Uncomment the line if necessary.

After editing the file, the vSphere Web Client service must be restarted.

Check Contents

Verify the vSphere Web Client sessions terminate after 10 minutes of idle time, requiring the user to log on again to resume using the client. You can view the timeout value by viewing the webclient.properties file.

On the system where vCenter is installed, locate the webclient.properties file.

Windows: C:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenter Server\cfg\vsphere-client

Find the session.timeout = line in the webclient.properties file.

If the session timeout is not set to 10 in the webclient.properties file, this is a finding.
