ProcedureTo Extend the DSCC Session Automatic Timeout Delay

After a period of time, your DSCC session will time out, and you will be logged out of DSCC. Use this procedure to extend the timeout delay. Note that this procedure extends the timeout for DSCC and for all other applications in Sun Java Web Console.

You cannot use DSCC to perform this task. Use the command line, as described in this procedure.

  1. As root, extend the timeout delay.

    # wcadmin add -p -a ROOT session.timeout.value=mm

    where mm is the number of minutes before timeout.

    For example, to set the timeout to two hours, type:

    $ su
    # wcadmin add -p -a ROOT session.timeout.value=120
    Set 1 properties for the ROOT application.
    # wcadmin list -p
    Shared service properties (name, value):
        session.timeout.value  120
  2. Restart Sun Java Web Console.

    # smcwebserver restart
    Shutting down Sun Java(TM) Web Console Version 3.0.2 ...
    Starting Sun Java(TM) Web Console Version 3.0.2 ...
    The console is running.
