Difference between ESXi Shell time-outs

ESXi Advanced Settings have two timeout parameters. Let's briefly discuss the difference between them.

UserVars.ESXiShellInteractiveTimeOut is by default 0 which means the time-out is disabled. If the vaulue is higher then 0 it enables time-out and defines number of seconds to log out form SSH or ESXi Shell Console sessions.

UserVars.ESXiShellTimeOut has the same behavior as described above but is is time-out of SSH or ESXi Shell Console services. So if you manually enable SSH or ESXi Shell Console service it will stop and disable these services after defined time-out.
