SIM Hardware Status Polling for Servers Timeout and Retries Settings

So maybe I'm dumb, but I've adjusted these to 120 seconds for timeout and 5 retries, but still I get "system unreachable" notifications when I just reboot a server. Maybe someone can further explain these settings or do I just need to do something silly like reboot the SIM server for them to take effect...?

Also, I'm fine with the default schedule of every 5 minutes. What I'd like to do with this poll is basically: run every 5 minutes, but if the server doesn't respond after 2 consecutive polls, then send the notification.

Hi,

Can we change the timeout about the event notifier?

For example , when a server is down more 5 minute when want this message : System is unreachable but not before 4min...

Is it possible ?

FYI, if anyone still cares, the solution to this is to change the schedule for the Hardware Status Polling for Servers task to every 10 minutes, instead of 5 minutes. Now I can reboot a server and not get notifications that a server is down...
