RE: [Linux-cluster] Add a fence device of type SUN ILOM



Dear list members, 

If I understand well, here are the steps I have to follow to configure a fence device that will use SUN ILOM interface :

1. Ensure that OpenIPMI and OpenIPMI-tools packages are installed on the cluster nodes.
2. With system-config-cluster tool, add a new fence device of type "IPMI Lan". Fill the form with the ILOM IP address, the name of the administrator user and his password. Then associate the fence device with the cluster node.
3. Repeat the step above for the SUN ILOM interface of each node.
4. Send the new configuration to the cluster
5. That's all and everything will be handle correctly by the cluster.

Am I ok? 

Best regards

I just tested it and it seems to work perfectly.  Sorry for bringing the
thread to a premature end  :)
