+.SS Multiple methods for a node
+
+In more advanced configurations, multiple fencing methods can be defined
+for a node.  If fencing fails using the first method, fenced will try the
+next method, and continue to cycle through methods until one succeeds.

+.SS Dual path, redundant power
+
+Sometimes fencing a node requires disabling two power ports or two i/o
+paths.  This is done by specifying two or more devices within a method.

+  <clusternode name="node1" nodeid="1">
+          <fence>
+             <method name="single">
+                <device name="sanswitch1" hw-specific-param="x"/>

+             </method>
+          </fence>
+  </clusternode>
+
+When using power switches to fence nodes with dual power supplies, the
+agents must be told to turn off both power ports before restoring power to
+either port.  The default off-on behavior of the agent could result in the
+power never being fully disabled to the node.
