Re: [Linux-cluster] 2-node cluster and fence_drac



Yes, the fence agent works after that. I tested it with DRAC firmware v3.20 and v3.35.
 
According to Dell:
Dell Remote Access Controller - ERA and DRAC III/XT, v.3.20, A00 was released on 12/8/2004
Dell Remote Access Controller - ERA and DRAC III/XT, v.3.30, A00 was released on 6/9/2005
Dell Remote Access Controller - ERA and DRAC III/XT, v.3.31, A00 was released on 07/25/2005
Dell Remote Access Controller - ERA and DRAC III/XT, v.3.35, A00 was released on 12/25/2005
I am sure it would work for v3.30 and v3.31 in this case as well.
 
Thanks,
Hai

Hai,

So, you are saying that if you are using a DRAC ERA card, and you set
the $drac_version in the script to $DRAC_VERSION_III_XT, then the fence
agent works? If so, we'll patch the agent accordingly. Please confirm.
