Configuring SSH connection and idle timeout thresholds for LCM jobs 

Adjust the default timeout values for Lifecycle Manager jobs as necessary for your environment.

Adjust the default timeout values for SSH connection attempts and idle status during Lifecycle Manager jobs as necessary for your environment. If jobs are timing out prematurely, increase the idle thresholds as appropriate for the job type:
  • installation job
  • restarting a node during a job
  • configuration job on a node
  • importing a cluster job

opscenterd.conf 

The location of the opscenterd.conf file depends on the type of installation:

  • Package installations: /etc/opscenter/opscenterd.conf
  • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/opscenterd.conf

Procedure

  1. Open opscenterd.conf for editing.
  2. Adjust the available SSH connection values shown below in the [lifecycle_manager] section:
    [lifecycle_manager] ssh_connect_timeout_in_seconds
    The number of seconds to wait for the SSH server on a target node to respond to a connection attempt during an LCM job. The default value is 30 seconds.
    [lifecycle_manager] ssh_max_attempts
    The maximum number of times to attempt an SSH connection to a given target during an LCM job. The default value is 3.
    [lifecycle_manager] ssh_retry_delay_in_seconds
    The number of seconds to wait between SSH connection retries during an LCM job. The default value is 10 seconds.
    The following example doubles the default values for SSH connection attempts by LCM:
    [lifecycle_manager]
    ssh_connect_timeout_in_seconds = 60
    ssh_max_attempts = 6
    ssh_retry_delay_in_seconds = 20
    
  3. Adjust the available default idle timeout values shown below in the [lifecycle_manager] section:
    [lifecycle_manager] node_install_idle_timeout
    Duration of inactivity in seconds before marking an install job as idle. Default: 900 seconds.
    [lifecycle_manager] node_restart_idle_timeout
    Duration of inactivity in seconds before marking a node restart job as idle. Default: 120 seconds.
    [lifecycle_manager] node_configure_idle_timeout
    Duration of inactivity in seconds before marking a node configuration job as idle. Default 120 seconds.
    [lifecycle_manager] node_cluster_import_idle_timeout
    Duration of inactivity in seconds before marking a cluster import job as idle. Default: 120 seconds.
    [lifecycle_manager] node_install_agent_idle_timeout
    Duration of inactivity in seconds before marking an agent install job as idle. Default: 120 seconds.
    The following example doubles the default timeout values for LCM jobs:
    [lifecycle_manager]
    node_install_idle_timeout = 1800
    node_restart_idle_timeout = 240
    node_configure_idle_timeout = 240
    node_cluster_import_idle_timeout = 240
    node_install_agent_idle_timeout = 240
  4. Restart OpsCenter.
