About the OnlineRetryLimit attribute

The OnlineRetryLimit attribute specifies the number of times the Online function is retried if the initial attempt to bring a resource online is unsuccessful.

When OnlineRetryLimit is set to a non-zero value, the agent first calls the Clean function and then reruns the Online function. However, if the ManageFaults attribute is set to NONE, the agent does not call the Clean function and does not retry the Online function. If you configure the ManageFaults attribute at the resource level, it supersedes the values that are configured at the service group level.
