I periodically get questions about vSphere "session timeouts" and because there are several different session timeouts in vSphere, there is usually a back and fourth to understand which session timeout a user is specifically asking about? 🙂
Once the specific vSphere session timeout has been identified, the next series of questions are typically:
- What is the default or current value?
- Is it configurable?
- If so, where and how can I change it?
To help simplify questions around this topic, I have put together this quick overview that also includes details for each specific session timeout and where to find and update the values.
