ProcedureHow to Set the Number of Retries for Client Inquiries

The default number of retries is 3. If the server does not get a response to three inquiries, it registers that client as unavailable. To change the number of retries, change the value of the ESI Retry Threshold property.

  1. Use the “iSNS Server Management” RBAC profile to obtain the authorizations needed for managing the iSNS service.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Use the svccfg command to change the property to, for example, 6 retries:

    # svccfg -s svc:/network/isns_server setprop\config/ESI_retry_threshold_count=6
  3. Reload the server configuration:

    # svcadm refresh svc:/network/isns_server
