In Artifactory, the lenientLimit in your Filestore Sharding Cluster the minimum number of filestores (default=1) that need to be reachable for successful writes to continue. Be mindful that your filestores are configured with a custom chain and are not based on the use of built-in templates (default of lenientLimit parameter=0).
If the lenientLimit parameter is 0 (in case of Default value or when it is explicitly set to 0) then you need to provide Redundancy value.
Active Nodes ≥ LenientLimit
For example, if your lenientLimit = 2 with a setup that includes 3 filestores with redundancy 3 in an HA cluster of 3 nodes, then if one of your three nodes goes down, deployments can still continue. However, if two of your three nodes go down, the deployment of artifacts will fail.
