The configuration file /etc/sysconfig/o2cb stores the active cluster stack, its name and the various cluster timeouts for the o2cb cluster stack.
This file can be populated using the o2cb init script. An example of the same is illustrated in the examples section.
The list of configurable parameters in this file are:
The remaining configurable parameters (cluster timeouts) are only relevant for the o2cb cluster stack. These cluster timeouts are used by the o2cb cluster stack to determine whether a node is dead or alive. The default timeouts are just a guide and may need to be tweaked depending on the hardware the software is running on.
The various cluster timeouts for the o2cb cluster stack are:
O2CB_HEARTBEAT_THRESHOLD = (((timeout in seconds) / 2) + 1)
For example, to specify a 60 sec timeout, set it to 31. For 120 secs, set it to 61. The default for this timeout is 60 secs (O2CB_HEARTBEAT_THRESHOLD = 31).
While it defaults to 60 secs, multipath users typically set it to 120 secs.

The current values will be shown in brackets (''). Hitting <ENTER> without typing an answer will keep that current value. Ctrl-C will abort.
