How to Tune Sun Cluster HA for NFS Method Timeouts

The time that Sun Cluster HA for NFS methods require to finish depends on the number of paths that the resources share through the dfstab.resource file. The default timeout for these methods is 300 seconds.

As a general guideline, allocate 10 seconds toward the method timeouts for each path that is shared. Default timeouts are designed to handle 30 shared paths.

Update the following method timeouts if the number of shared paths is greater than 30.


To change method timeouts, use the scrgadm -c option, as in the following example.

% scrgadm -c -j resource -y Prenet_start_timeout=500
