  Answering myself:

Go into SE mode:

priv set SE

 Checking the parameter:

[email protected]## se sysparam show OST_ABANDON_TIMEOUT
Name Description Current Default Override ------------------- --------------------------------- ------- ------- -------- OST_ABANDON_TIMEOUT DDCP abandon context timeout(sec) 10800 10800 none ------------------- --------------------------------- ------- ------- --------
  Changing (probably, didn't test it yet):

se sysparam show OST_ABANDON_TIMEOUT=21600

Hello all,

   Recently, we deployed a new DD670. Ever since then, the incremental
backups of a Novell volume are failing (fulls are OK). Before that,
backups were going to an AFTD on a Solaris X86 storage node. After some
investigation, I suspect that this is the result of an inactivity
timeout withing the DD (or ddboost library). I was able to find some
documentation about OST_ABANDON_TIMEOUT, for example esg125254. This
parameter is to be changed by EMC only. I found some reference to an SE
(system engineer ?) mode and was able to get into it (priv set SE in the
CLI, http://blog.colovirt.com/2008/12/29/data-domain-hung-alert/) .
However, the commands are not documented, so I cannot tell how to change
this. I opened a case with my vendor, but they are still tryning to
figure this out. Can anyone tell me where and how to set this variable ?

TIA.
