Changing the Quorum Default Time-out

A default 25-second time-out exists for the completion of quorum operations during a cluster reconfiguration. You can increase the quorum time-out to a higher value by following the instructions in How to Configure Quorum Devices in Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment. Rather than increasing the time-out value, you can also switch to a different quorum device.

Additional troubleshooting information is available in How to Configure Quorum Devices in Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment.


Note -  Do not change the default quorum time-out of 25 seconds for Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC). In certain split-brain scenarios, a longer time-out period might lead to the failure of Oracle RAC VIP failover, due to the VIP resource timing out.

If the quorum device being used is not conforming with the default 25–second time-out, use a different quorum device.
