Adjusting the giveback delay time for automatic giveback

By default, there is a 600-second minimum time that a node stays in the takeover state before performing an automatic giveback. This delay reduces the overall outage that can occur while the taken-over partner reboots. Instead of a single longer outage, there are two brief outages (first when the partner is taken over, the second when giveback occurs). This option affects all types of automatic giveback but does not affect manual giveback.

  1. Enter the following command:options number of seconds The valid values for number_of_seconds are 0 to 600. The default is 600.
    Attention: If is set to 0, the combined outage during takeover and giveback results in a long total client outage.
