To check fencing, you can to a
# gnbd_import -s <node_to_fence> -t <server_to_fence_from>
# gnbd_import -c <server_you_fenced_from>

This will show the banned list on the server. The fenced node should be there.
The node will remain on the panned list until it is manually unfenced, or
until the gnbd module is reloaded, and it reimports devices from the server.
