Time out Enterprise Manager interface

Post by Peejay62 » Dec 05, 2013 2:43 pm

When opened the Enterprise Manager interface after some idle time the session disconnects and the login prompt reappears. Is this behaviour as expected? I have been looking for something like an idle session timeout setting but cannot find this. Is there an option to set this.
I want the session to never disconnect,or at least stay active for a very long time So you don't have to re-login all the time...

Yes, you can customize the auto-logoff timeout by changing the following value in the C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Enterprise Manager\WebApp\web.config file:

Code: Select all

<add key="sessionTimeout" value="30"/>
(value is in minutes)

I still remember when in early days, some paid product review sponsored by a competitor (whose solution did not have a web portal) noted that our portal does not have auto-logoff feature, making it insecure and not enterprise-ready. When actually, we did have auto-logoff since the very first version of web portal. Apparently, 30 minutes can be too long of a wait for some ;)

Sorry for reviving an old post, used veeam search and found this forum. :-)

Just wondering if this timeout value still can be used in the latest 9.5 version. Also after changing the value what service needs to be restarted for it to take effect?

Hi Tony,

No apologies for reviving an old post. I would rather say good job since you used search ;-)

Yes, this key has not changed so you can adapt it. I am not sure if you actually need to restart something but if you would restart the Veeam Enterprise Manager service that should do the trick

Hi, you only need to logoff any session of enterprise manager, and after login the new timeout will be applied to the sessions.

For monitoring we need the Enterprise maganer always open. If i put 0 on the sessiontimout value, it will close?

Apparently you need another timeout that is set right on EM itself. Zero value will not work so just set it to some high number.
