All of a sudden my Citrix NetScaler Cluster disconnected my ssh or gui sessions sooner than I wished. I cannot recall which configuration change or upgrade caused this issue but I got disconnected after about five minutes idle time.
I read several articles and asked former colleagues and never succeeded but finally a hint by Marcus Jaeger from Citrix Systems sent me down the right path.
First you should check the current setting after you signed on via ssh.
As you can see in my example the specified timeout is exactly five minutes. Trying to alter this value might show you an error message like the following.
If this is the case you will have to check and probably change the global System Settings timeout value.
Now it should be possible to Change the timeout.
Do not Forget to save your running configuration!
