fence_xcat: I/O Fencing agent for xcat environments

NAME

fence_xcat - I/O Fencing agent for xcat environments

SYNOPSIS

fence_xcat [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

fence_xcat is a wrapper to the rpower(1) command that is distributed with the xCAT project available at http://www.xcat.org. Use of fence_xcat requires that xcat has already been properly configured for your environment. Refer to xCAT(1) for more information on configuring xCAT.

fence_xcat accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_xcat can be run by itself with command line options which is useful for testing.

NOTE: It is recommended that fence_bladecenter(8) is used instead of fence_xcat if the bladecenter firmware supports telnet. This interface is much cleaner and easier to setup.
