I have a webapp running on Wildfly 9. I have 7 datasources defined in standalone.xml and, occasionally, four of the seven may be unreachable. When the datasources are unreachable, the deployment process slows to a crawl due to the The TCP/IP connection to the host 10.165.198.30, port 1433 has failed. Error: "connect timed out.exceptions. I would like Jboss to continue to try to connect to the unreachable ds's, but I do not want it to block or slow down the deployment process. I've tried adjusting blocking-timeout-millis, allocation-retry, and allocation-retry-wait-millis, but Jboss continues to try to connect every few seconds (and blocks deployment while it's waiting). Any thoughts on how I can address this issue? Thank you.
