Ok, this took me a while to find, but once done I have never had to sign-in again:To enable your session to stay logged in (vCenter Web Client):
- Connect to your server using SSH or drop to a console.
- edit: /var/lib/vmware/vsphere-client/webclient.properties file
- Change the value (remove the HASH at the start of the line): session.timeout = -120 – That is ANY negative number or ZERO.
- Restart the server.
Note: According to VMware you can just restart the Web Client Service, but for me it only worked some of the time. Easier to restart the server…
