Orchestrator Connection Timeout with Virtual Machines

Dear Forum Members,
Request your insights on a issue I am seeing while connecting Orchestrator robot with a Virtual Machine Node on VMware Horizon VDI .
I think first time when the Orchestrator is trying to login in to the Machine it is failing to do so and getting a "Timeout " as the boot time of the machine is high during initial set up.
I would like to know from you the following:

  • Where can I find the connectivity timeout settings for Machines in Orchestrator

  • Which protocol is used to connect with host machines (Physical or Virtual).

Any information would e appreciated.
Thanks and regards,


Welcome back to UiPath forum check for this thread on how to handle slow robot start

Can you try restarting you VDI and check

Also make sure that your domain credentials are given correct while setting the machine in orchestrator

Hope this may help you
