| On each Windows computer with the vSphere Client installed, verify: |
A 15 minute (maximum) timeout is set in the VpxClient.exe.config file:
Locate the VpxClient.exe.config file using the Windows OS search facility. Next, right click on VpxClient.exe.config and edit the file using an editor, such as Notepad. In the ... section, verify the setting X where X is the (maximum=15) number of minutes before the vSphere Client will automatically disconnect from the server.
Verify the timeout that the vSphere Client executable is started with is an execution flag:
Locate the vSphere Client executable icon on the desktop, right click, and select properties. Verify the presence of "-inactivityTimeout 15" in the command.
If either of the above methods are invoked and the timeout interval exceeds 15 minutes, this is a finding.
