The study of unreliable server retrial bulk queue with multiphase optional service is analyzed by incorporating the features of balking, Bernoulli vacation and Bernoulli feedback. On the occasion when the server is occupied with the service of the customers, an arriving customer finding the long queue, can join the retrial orbit and receives its service later on by making re-attempt. The system is reinforced with multi phase optional service along with essential service and joining customer can opt any one of optional services after getting essential service. Furthermore, the essential/optional service can be aborted due to abrupt failure of the server. There is an immediate support of multi phase repair facility to take care of the failed server, but sometimes repair may be put on hold by virtue of any unexpected cause. If the service is unsatisfactory, the customer can rejoin the queue as feedback customer. Bernoulli vacation is permitted to the server following the respective busy period. For evaluating the queue size distribution and other system performance metrics, supplementary variable technique (SVT) is used. The approximate solutions for the steady state probabilities and waiting time are suggested using maximum entropy principle (MEP). We perform a comparative study of the exact waiting time obtained by the supplementary variable technique and the approximate waiting time derived by using maximum entropy principle by taking the numerical illustration. Quasi Newton method is used to find optimal cost. To verify the outcomes of the model, numerical illustrations and senstivity analysis have been accomplished.
