There is a noticeable delay when performing a remote attach from Rdb and the end node is inaccessible.

The response time may vary, depending on network configuration and machines involved.  The error message finally returned is:

%SQL-F-ERRATTDEC, Error attaching to database disk1:[database]mydb
-RDB-F-IO_ERROR, input or output error
-SYSTEM-F-UNREACHABLE, remote node is not currently reachable
