Lon, Thanks for your response. I didn't realize that /sbin/fenced should be running at all times. During an actual fence action, I do see fence_apc show up so this all sounds normal, right?

If those stay around for a long time, there's a problem. -- Lon -- Linux-cluster mailing list Linux-cluster redhat com https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/linux-cluster Confidentiality Notice: This message is intended for the use of the individual or entity to which it is addressed and may contain information that is privileged, confidential and exempt from disclosure under applicable law.
