You configure a timeout limit that indicates how long to save Horizon Client credential information on mobile devices and Mac client systems by setting a value in View LDAP. The timeout limit is set in minutes. When you change View LDAP on a View Connection Server instance, the change is propagated to all replicated View Connection Server instances.


See the Microsoft TechNet Web site for information on how to use the ADSI Edit utility on your Windows operating system version.


  1. Start the ADSI Edit utility on your View Connection Server host.
  2. In the Connection Settings dialog box, select or connect to DC=vdi,DC=vmware,DC=int.
  3. In the Computer pane, select or type localhost:389 or the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the View Connection Server host followed by port 389.
    For example: localhost:389 or
  4. On the object CN=Common, OU=Global, OU=Properties, edit the clientCredentialCacheTimeout attribute value.
    When clientCredentialCacheTimeout is not set or is set to 0, the feature is disabled. To enable this feature, you can set the number of minutes to retain the credential information, or set a value of -1, meaning that there is no timeout.


On View Connection Server, the new setting takes effect immediately. You do not need to restart the View Connection Server service or the client computer.
