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

if you have access to the hardware, take a look at implementing the fence
