How do we increase the logout timeout for System Manager 8.3? Or get rid of the idle timeout?


Just implemented my first FAS8040 with cDOT 8.3.


Of course System Manager 8.3 web interface logs me out after a while of inactivity. Is there an option to change this?




I was able to find this setting, it is in the upper right hand corner.  The menu item is "Administration" with a drop down arrow.

from here select settings.  To remove the timeout altogether select "0" in the number of minutes to wait.

Hope this helps.




options autologout.console.enable on (value might be overwritten in takeover)
options autologout.console.timeout 60 (value might be overwritten in takeover)
options autologout.telnet.enable on (value might be overwritten in takeover)
options autologout.telnet.timeout 60 (value might be overwritten in takeover)


In the command mode you can set this value ..Enjoyyyy ..Thanks

Ok, I see it now.


To elaborate on this.


You have to be logged into System Manager in order for the inactivity timeout option to be available for changing.


If you're on the login screen you only have the option to change Log details. This is why I did not see that options.
