Article ID: KB5900 KB Last Updated: 18 Dec 2017Version: 5.0

How to change management session timeout value?


The command set admin auth timeout does not work for CLI (telnet/SSH) management sessions.


The WebUI management timeout only applies to WebUI and SSL management. From the CLI, the timeout for WebUI and SSL can be set by:

set admin auth web timeout <timeout in minutes>

For CLI (telnet/SSH/SCP), the management timeout is controlled by the following command:

set console timeout <timeout in minutes>
