Usage Guidelines

  • Run set maxioretrytimeout -t time to set the I/O retry timeout of all storage systems.
  • Run set maxioretrytimeout -t time -a array-id to set the I/O retry timeout of a specified storage system.
  • Run set maxioretrytimeout -t time -l vlun-id to set the I/O retry timeout of a specified virtual LUN.

In some cases, I/Os are not successfully processed (for example, due to fully-loaded HBAs) even if no clear faults occur on paths. UltraPath for vSphere will retry to avoid I/O failure. However, if the I/Os are not returned for a long time, the impact on some upper-layer applications may be worse than an I/O failure. In this case, you can set the timeout period for I/O retry to prevent such an impact.


Set the timeout period for I/O retry on UltraPath for vSphere to 1800 seconds.

~ # esxcli upadm set maxioretrytimeout -t 1800 
Succeeded in executing the command.
