June 19, 2013

Table of Contents

This is just a quick post I thought to remind us how to disable the default web timeout of 30 minutes in vCenter Operations.

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




  • Save the changes via ESC, :wq
  • restart the vcopsweb service via:  service vcopsweb restart
  • Wait until the service is ready again.

When all is done you can login to vCenter and enjoy the view of your dashboards.
