Sun Cluster Geographic Edition System Administration Guide

ProcedureHow to Modify the Heartbeat Properties

  1. Log in to a cluster node.

    You must be assigned the Geo Management RBAC rights profile to complete this procedure. For more information about RBAC, see Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Software and RBAC.

  2. Modify the heartbeat properties.

    # geohb set-prop -p propertysetting \
    [-p…] heartbeatname
    -p propertysetting

    Specifies the default properties of the heartbeat.

    A heartbeat property is assigned a value by a name=statement pair. Multiple properties can be set at one time by using multiple statements.

    For more information about the properties you can set, see Appendix A, Standard Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Properties.


    Specifies an identifier for the heartbeat settings.

    For information about the names and values that are supported by Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software, see Appendix B, Legal Names and Values of Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Entities.

    For more information about the geohb command, refer to the geohb(1M) man page.
