### VNC console url ages out

Hello,

I've installed openstack newton on ubuntu16.04 and it works great. However, looks like the VNC console of the VM ages out after awhile. Is there anyway to generate a persistent url or disable the timeout?

user1@controller:~$openstack console url show corpnet-vm-1 +-------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Field | Value | +-------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | type | novnc | | url | http://controller:6080/vnc_auto.html?token=4e9b60e2-b8a1-4f85-aed3-0892af6adfe3 | +-------+---------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ This url seems to age out after maybe 30 mins. If i run the command again then i'll get a new url which works fine but i just wanted a permanent url.

This url seems to age out after maybe 30 mins. If i run the command again then i'll get a new url which works fine but i just wanted a permanent url.
