VC is the virtual center server, i understood from your mail that you’re using virtual infrastructure, but you question points out the fact that you maybe are using standalone ESX server ?
in our configuration we use an ESX farm of 4 servers managed by the VC server where we connect with the VI client
<fencedevice name="your_fence_method" agent="fence_vi3" ipaddr="yourserver_ip" port="your_vm_name" login="xxx" passwd="yyyyy"/>
though I don’t know if it works on standalone server, maybe you would have ton install the VMI perlmodules described inside the script to you ESX 3.5 server

Thanks Marry for the script. I will test and let you know. By the way what’s this VC server? Is it the system where I am running my VI client?
Can you please elaborate little more on this configuration like where I will keep this script, what will I mention in my cluster.conf file and etc.

i’m using this script for VI 3 and ESX3.02 i guess it would work for you too, cannot remember where I found it though J
note that you have to send the restart request to your VC server and not to the ESX server

Does anybody have configured fencing in VMware ESX 3.5 environment? I appreciate any help.
I have got some info from http://www.tournament.org.il/run/index.php?/archives/140-VMware-Fencing-in-RedHat-Cluster-5-RHCS5.html .
This script given here is for VMware server. Any idea whether it will work for ESX 3.5 server or not?
My system configurations are as follows.
Host machine : Unisys ES7000-one with host OS as VMware ESX 3.5
Guest Machines: Guest OS as Rhel5.1 AP
I am connecting to host machine using VMware VI 3.0.
