In Virutal Center, Administration, Virtual Center Management Server Configuration, Timeout Settings.

Normal Operation is 60 Seconds.

Long Operation is 240 Minutes

Here's a script that will create a session, save it to a session file and keep it alive. If at any time the session is terminated, the script will create a new session and new session file.

Usage: SessionKeeper.pl --server <servername> --file <session_filename_to_be_saved>

I assume you talked about the user session timeout. The default is 30 minutes.

Check the VC configuration file: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\vpxd.cfg

Add <soap>*** as follows:

<config>

<vmacore>

<threadpool>

<TaskMax> 10 </TaskMax>

</threadpool>

<soap><sessionTimeout>60</sessionTimeout></soap>

</vmacore>

</config>

NOTE: RESTART THE VC SERVER after the change.
