fence_idrac: Fence agent for IPMI

NAME

fence_idrac - Fence agent for IPMI

fence_ilo3 - Fence agent for HP iLO3 (symlink)

fence_ilo4 - Fence agent for HP iLO4 (symlink)

fence_imm - Fence agent for IBM Integrated Management Module (symlink)

fence_idrac - Fence agent for Dell iDRAC (symlink)

DESCRIPTION

fence_ipmilan is an I/O Fencing agentwhich can be used with machines controlled by IPMI.This agent calls support software ipmitool (http://ipmitool.sf.net/). WARNING! This fence agent might report success before the node is powered off. You should use -m/method onoff if your fence device works correctly with that option.

fence_idrac accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_idrac can be run by itself with command line options. This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
