Is there some 'tuneable' we can set to make the 10.3 boxes more tolerant

Do you know whether the VMs saw the disks disconnecting and then
connecting again?

I can't see any evidence the drives actually get 'disconnected' from the
VM's point of view. Plenty of I/O errors - but no "device destroyed"
type stuff.

I have seen that kind of error logged on our test kit - when
deliberately failed non-HA storage, but I don't see it this time.

Hm, I have the feeling that part of the problem is that in-flight
requests are basically lost when a disconnect/reconnect happens.

So if a disconnect doesn't happen (as it appears it isn't) - is there
any tunable to set the I/O timeout?

'sysctl -a | grep timeout' finds things like:


Yes, you can try to set kern.cam.ada.default_timeout to 60 or more, but it can has downside too.
