Re: [Linux-cluster] help reqd. - VMware ESX 3.5 fencing



I'm running Gentoo, but that shouldn't make a difference.  Here's what I
did:

- install various support perl packages as listed in the VMWare perl
  tooklit 1.5 source install instructions.  This is the one from ESX
  3.5.

- install VMware-VIPerl-Toolkit-1.5.0-source.tar.gz

- copy the AppUtil directory as listed in the source code

- run the test cmd I posted earlier "echo stuff | fence_vi3"

I think the disconnect is probably due to differing vipertoolkit
versions.

I had also tried switching VIM2Runtime.pm with VIM25Runtime.pm, but to
no avail.  Switching that line to VIRuntime is what did it.
