Does anyone know of a good solution to providing good failover for somthing like a Dell 1850? The issue here is that the power souce plug in the back provides power for both the internal power
and the node itself. So if you pull the cord it will not failover
it can not Stonith the failed node (power controller is down also).

Generally, you can't handle this without external fencing.

Lon - having reread that previous posting of yours, and esp the last paragraph:

(c) ... If a host does a "graceful shutdown" when
you fence it via IPMI, you need to disable ACPI on that host (e.g. boot
with acpi=off).  The server should turn off immediately (or within 4-5
seconds, like when holding an ATX power button in to force a machine

Just so I am absolutely sure about this: Is the above the only scenario when would have to disable ACPI? e.g. a graceful shutdown is easy to spot. If I don't see one in the logs, that means I can leave ACPI on?
