I have an APC MasterSwitch as my fencing device. I configured my cluster to use “APC” as the fencing device, and have confirmed that it has the correct un, pw, and IP address configured. However, when it tries to reboot a failed node, I get this in /var/log/messages:
Jul 20 15:51:28 server1 fenced: agent "fence_apc" reports: failed: unrecognised menu response
Jul 20 15:51:28 server1 fenced: fence "server2.my.domain.com" failed
However, when I run this command from a terminal, it runs fine and the failed node reboots:
fence_apc -a 192.168.1.61 –l ***** -p ***** -n 6 –v
