How Can I Handle Slow ECS Startup?

If an ECS requires a long period of time to start, you can change the default timeout to speed up the startup.

  1. Log in to the ECS.
  2. Run the following command to switch to user root:

    sudo su

  3. Run the following command to obtain the grub version:

    rpm -qa | grep grub

  4. Change the timeout in the grub file to 0s.
    • If the grub version is earlier than 2:

      Open the /boot/grub/grub.cfg or /boot/grub/menu.lst file and change the timeout value to 0.

    • If the grub version is 2:

      Open the /boot/grub2/grub.cfg file and change the timeout value to 0.
