Re: [Linux-cluster] iLO device as fencing device



Hello,
You might want to have a look at 
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/open-sharedroot/comoonics-bootimage-fenceclient-ilo-0.1-16.noarch.rpm?modtime=1165569070&big_mirror=0 
(www.open-sharedroot.org -> downloads -> 
comoonics-bootimage-fenceclient-ilo). We addressed the problem of the normal 
fence_ilo being a little slow and the timeouts. We also added an 
option "hardoff" or "coldreset" where we went passt the acpi being used for 
powering off and on. Syntax is compatible. 
You can also use it for more extended things with the XML-ILO interface (-x 
option) for automatically adding powerusers or reseting the ilo-card. Which 
helped a lot.
Have fun using it.
Regards Marc.
