Citrix Hypervisor Feature Request: Allow HA Timeout to be configurable in XenCenter HA Configuration Wizard

Jarel Walker


Currently in Citrix Hypervisor 8.0 (and all previous XenServer versions) when you enable HA via XenCenter you are not given the option to configure the HA timeout.

If you wish to change the default HA timeout you must enable HA using the CLI command:

xe pool-ha-enable heartbeat-sr-uuids=sr_uuid ha-config:timeout=timeout in seconds


Additionally, if you set the timeout using the above command and have to disable and re-enable HA for maintenance, the timeout is reverted to the default again, unless you always use the CLI command to enable HA. 


Please add the ability to set the HA timeout via XenCenter and also display the current HA timeout in XenCenter. 

Currently you have to check the value of the StateFileTimeout setting in /etc/xensource/xhad.conf to determine the current timeout setting.
