Client computers that host local desktops send heartbeat messages to View Connection Server at regular intervals to read the status of their checked-out desktops. The default heartbeat interval for all client computers is five minutes. You can change the heartbeat interval for all client computers. You can also set a different heartbeat interval for a specific client computer.

To change the heartbeat interval for all client computers that host local desktops, you use the ADSI Edit utility to edit View LDAP on your View Connection Server host. The ADSI Edit utility is installed with View Connection Server.

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.
