VMware vSphere 5.5 Web Client Session Timeout

By default the VMware vSphere 5.5 Web Client session timeout is set to 30 minutes.   To change this setting so the client never times-out complete the following on the server hosting the Web Client service.

  • Open the webclient.properties file in the C:\ProgramData\VMware\vSphere Web Client folder.
  • Change the session timeout entry so it reads session.timeout = 0
  • Save and close the webclient.properties file.
  • Restart the vSphere Web Client service.
