Set timeout values for Solaris guest operating systems


The guest operating system (OS) timeout scripts set the SCSI I/O timeout settings for Solaris 10. You can specify either a 60-second timeout or a 190-second timeout.

What you will need

You must have mounted the ISO image containing the Solaris script.


  1. Access the console of the Solaris virtual machine, and log in to an account with root privileges.

  2. Run the script.

    For Solaris 10, a message similar to the following is displayed:

    Setting I/O Timeout for /dev/s–a - SUCCESS!
  3. Unmount the ISO image.
