The max-operation-attempts property (part of the Sync Pipe configuration) specifies the maximum number of times to retry a synchronization operation that fails for reasons other than the Sync Destination being busy, unavailable, server connection closed, or connect error.

To change the default number of retries, use dsconfig in non-interactive mode to change the max-operation-attempts value on the Sync Pipe object. The following command changes the number of maximum attempts from five (default) to four.

$ bin/dsconfig set-sync-pipe-prop \
  --pipe-name "Test Sync Pipe" \
  --set max-operation-attempts:4
