How to Modify the Properties of a Heartbeat Plug-in

This procedure describes how to modify heartbeat plug-in properties.

When you modify a heartbeat plug-in property, your changes take effect immediately.

Note -  You can also accomplish this procedure by using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface. Click Partnerships, click the partnership name to go to its page, click the heartbeat name to go to its page, click the plug-in name to go to its page, click the Properties tab, and click Edit to access the listed properties for editing. For Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager in Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 System Administration Guide.

Before You Begin

You must be assigned the Geo Management rights profile to complete this procedure. For more information, see Securing Geographic Edition Software in Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 Geographic Edition Installation and Configuration Guide.

  1. Log in to a cluster node.
  2. Modify the heartbeat plug-in properties.

    Note -  You cannot edit some properties of the default plug-ins, tcp_upd_plugin and ping_plugin. For more information about the properties you can set, see Standard Geographic Edition Properties.
    # geohb modify-plugin -p property-setting [-p…] plug-in-name heartbeat-name

    For information about the names and values that are supported by the Geographic Edition framework, see Legal Names and Values of Geographic Edition Entities.
