session timeout and applet timeout when script runs

  • 1.  session timeout and applet timeout when script runs

    Hi,

    In CAPAM we have set the session timeout and applet timeout as 10 minutes. When we are running some script In Linux/Network device that is more than half an hour, then how it can be handled by CAPAM. If the session is disconnected after 10 minutes of inactive time, if I connect the session again it is opening the new session in Linux device/Network device in CAPAM. Can you clarify this case, is the script runs in background or not?

    regards
    Ramesh

    Hi,

    Our PAM Applet timeout session will act exactly the same way if SSHD (/etc/ssh/sshd_config) is configured with a timeout as well:

    ClientAliveInterval 60
    ClientAliveCountMax 0


    If you have a script that is running in the foreground, with no user input in session for over 1 minute, the session and therefore script will be killed.
    If the script is put to the background (./testscript.sh &) - it would continue to run.
