To set the heartbeat interval for a specific client computer that hosts a local desktop, you use the Windows Registry Editor to edit the system registry on that computer.

View does not use the heartbeat interval set on the client computer if the value is greater than the heartbeat interval set on the View Connection Server host. View always uses the lesser of the two values. The default View Connection Server heartbeat interval is five minutes.

See the Microsoft TechNet Web site for information on how to use the Windows Registry Editor on the local mode client system's Windows operating system version.

1

Start the Windows Registry Editor on the local desktop client computer.

2

Add a new registry key called policyUpdateFrequency.

The system registry location depends on client computer's processor type.
