vCenter Operations: Disable the default web timeout


Just a quick note to remember how to disable the default web timeout of 30 minutes in vCenter Operations.

  1. Login as root on the UI VM.
  2. Open the the web.xml file with VI: vi/usr/lib/vmware-vcops/tomcat/webapps/vcops-vsphere/WEB-INF/web.xml
  3. Change the default value 30 to –1 to disable the timeout completely.

  6. restart the vcopsweb service via:  service vcopsweb restart
  7. Wait until the service is ready again.

Login to vCenter Operations and enjoy the view of your dashboards Smile

    Thanks — useful. Seeing your note saved me from having to go find the timeout someplace when I got around to it.
