WSMAN: System.String IdleTimeout value shockingly high

Wow…pretty sure we did not set this number:

WSManConfig: Microsoft.WSMan.Management\WSMan::localhost\Shell

Type Name SourceOfValue Value


System.String IdleTimeout 7200000

The example on page 255 sounds a more reasonable 2,000 hours.

Since the section stresses the importance of Administrator responsibility, how should I proceed for all of our 2008/2012 DCs?

7200000 is the number of seconds in 2000 hours. :slight_smile: Many of these sorts of things are stored as “number of seconds”.

60 * 60 * 2000

Dave, Excellent thanks for clarifying buddy.
