I have set up ESXi to run some virtual machines. At the moment I only have two machines, an Ubuntu 13.04 and then a Windows XP Pro machine. I want to use the Windows XP Pro machine to run a desktop program I have created. This program is supposed to be running 24h/day. So I logged in on the Windows XP Pro machine and started the program. I checked on it several times by disconnecting it and logging in again. Everything looked fine. But the next day, the session was gone. When I logged in again, it was like starting up a fresh session. Nothing was running and the familiar welcome sound was playing.
My questions are:
- Are there any timeouts on sessions on Windows XP Pro that kills these sessions if they have been disconnected for some time?
- How can I see why the session dissapears? Does it say so in the event log or some place like that?
