VM Console Session Limit

Recently observed one new issue for new VMs coming into my VC 5.1 -all are set by default with limit of  1 Max  Console session from VC??

so creating issues..like all i have to power off and change the setting or have to update -Virtual Machine Console Options for Remote Users using VC Web Client.

Need to understand if this is new feature added ..or if something wrongly processed during VM implementation?

I need this to be resolved by increasing multiple session or if somehow we can locate and kill session for linux VMs?

Can we make this as default setting for all new VMs?

Thanks.a lot.But I am looking for solution if it can be configured as default setting for all new VMs we are getting in VC ?

I have tried that one by making VM off and make changes using Vi Client and Web Client as well.

My requirement is to make this setting default for new VMs?

Can we do this @Host level..so that all vms coming to Host ll change this setting accordingly?

Can we locate for VMs using any automated solution/utility/script for VMs created with session limit configured ?

this is something recently observed for newly vms coming to my VC, while earlier there was no issue observed for vms created using same template /method?

so is that something changed @host level?.. we normally done patching@Host level only nothing else.
please advise if it something changed after esxi [5.1]host patching?

You can change the VM or the Host, see the Web Link I posted.

You can do anything with scripts, if you want. But if you set the HOST to a value, do you need do anything else ?

there could have been a change.

see the web link I posted, the defaults can be changed at the host level, so you do not need to change each VM.

You need to change that on 600+ hosts, and make it part of your Auto Deploy, or Automated Scripts.

Or write a script to deploy afterwards.

You would have to speak to VMware Support, to understand why this has been changed, and when.
