RE: [Linux-cluster] Testing a fence program

It looks like fence_xen.pl, by default anyway, uses ssh to login to the
remote xen host and shut down or destroy the instance.  That's what I'm
trying to avoid because of certain rules and regulations I have to

I went ahead and wrote a gSOAP/libvirt based fencing agent that doesn't
require any type of shell access and uses SSL client certificate
authentication.  It solves the problems while keeping the regulation
Nazis off my back.

There's fence_xen already in -head, maybe it does some of what you need
