RE: [Linux-cluster] Sun ILOM



I'm sure you know this, but Sun has shipped several different out of band management solutions over the years. They have different software, commands, and features.
 
Some (all maybe, couldn't say) of the newer stuff is IPMI... coolthreads, the newer x86 based boxes certainly, etc. There are a few different types it could be if its older equipment.
 
Just something to keep in mind if you hear that IPMI is working for a Sun box.
 
Curious -- what kind of hardware are you building out your cluster on?

I should say that I am successfully using fence_ipmi in a 3-node Sun 4600 cluster -- though I obviously had to connect to the iLOM via the network interface rather than the serial interface (which is our normal procedure).

Hi!

Are Sun's LOM and ILOM cards supported as fencing devices for Red Hat
Cluster Suite?

No one has implemented a fencing script for those devices as of yet.  I believe people have had success using fence_ipmi with the Sun hardware, so you might want to try that.  Alternatively, if you have access to the hardware, take a look at implementing the fence agent.
