I attached the modified fence_apc agent for use with Outlet Groups, just
replace fence_apc in /sbin with this one (as long as you're using outlet
groups, if you're not you'll have to use the original one that comes
with the cluster software.)  I'll whip up a proper, non-outlet group
compatible, patch when I get some time.

When you setup your fence devices, you'll want to use the name of the
port, instead of the port number.  My config looks like this for the
node's fence device config:
<device name="AUHAPC01" port="AUHJPSN01A" switch="0"/>

Or if you don't rename the ports: 
<device name="AUHAPC01" port="Outlet 1" switch="0"/>

By default the port names are "Outlet X", but if you change them like I
did just use whatever you called the port.

Hope this helps
