SOL-11.1-050460 - The operating system must terminate all sessions and network connections when non-local maintenance is completed - 'ClientAliveInterval'


Non-local maintenance and diagnostic activities are those activities conducted by individuals communicating through a network, either an external network (e.g., the Internet) or an internal network.

The operating system needs to ensure all sessions and network connections are terminated when non-local maintenance is completed.


The root role is required.

Configure the system to disconnect SSH sessions after 10 minutes of inactivity.

# pfedit /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Insert the two lines:

ClientAliveInterval 600
ClientAliveCountMax 0

Restart the SSH service with the new configuration.

# svcadm restart svc:/network/ssh
