Modifying a Heartbeat Plug-in Property

This section describes procedures for modifying heartbeat plug-in properties. When you modify a plug-in property, your changes take effect immediately.

ProcedureHow to Modify the Properties of a Heartbeat Plug-in

  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 plug-in properties.

    # geohb modify-plugin -p propertysetting \
    [-p…] pluginname heartbeatname

    Specifies an identifier for the heartbeat.


    Specifies the name of the heartbeat plug-in.

    -p propertysetting

    Specifies a heartbeat plug-in property that is assigned a value by using a name=statement pair. Multiple properties might 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.

    Note –

    You cannot edit some properties of the default plug-ins.

    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.
