Does anybody here know of a fencing module that would work with VMWare
ESX Server 3? We utilize VMWare for our cluster infrastructure and would
like to put fencing in place to power down virtual machines.
Our desire is to use the fence_xvm/fence_xvmd agent for all virtual
machine management in the clusters. The problem with fencing virtual
machines is knowing on which physical machine the virtual instance is
executing. With the ability to failover/restart/migrate virtual instances,
fence_xvmd maintains that status and tracks the movement.
