ProcedureHow to Change Resource Properties

This procedure explains how to change extension properties and standard properties of a resource.

Note –

Perform this procedure from any cluster node.

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have the following information.

  1. On a cluster member, become superuser or assume a role that provides solaris.cluster.modify RBAC authorization.

  2. View the current resource property settings.

    # clresource show -v resource
  3. Change the resource property.

    # clresource set -p standard-property=new-value | -p "extension-property \
    [{node-specifier}]"=new-value resource
    -p standard-property=new-value

    Specifies the name of the standard property to change.

    -p "extension-property[{node-specifier}]"=new-value

    Specifies the name of the extension property to change.

    node-specifier is an optional qualifier to the -p and -x options. This qualifier indicates that the extension property or properties on only the specified node or nodes are to be set when the resource is created. The specified extension properties on other nodes in the cluster are not set. If you do not include node-specifier, the specified extension properties on all nodes in the cluster are set. You can specify a node name or a node identifier for node-specifier. Examples of the syntax of node-specifier include the following:

    -p "myprop{phys-schost-1}"

    The braces ({}) indicate that you are setting the specified extension property on only node phys-schost-1. For most shells, the double quotation marks (“) are required.

    You can also use the following syntax to set an extension property in two different global-cluster non-voting nodes on two different global-cluster voting nodes:

    -x "myprop{phys-schost-1:zoneA,phys-schost-2:zoneB}"

    Note –

    The extension property that you specify with node-specifier must be declared in the RTR file as a per-node property. See Appendix B, Standard Properties for information about the Per_node resource property attribute.


    Specifies the name of the resource.

  4. Verify that the resource property has been changed.

    # clresource show -v resource

Example 2–21 Changing a Standard Resource Property

This example shows how to change the system-defined Start_timeout property for the resource (resource-1).

# clresource set -p start_timeout=30 resource-1
# clresource show -v resource-1

Example 2–22 Changing an Extension Resource Property

This example shows how to change an extension property (Log_level) for the resource (resource-1).

# clresource set -p Log_level=3 resource-1
# clresource show -v resource-1
