Re: [Linux-cluster] Fencing using iDRAC/ Dell M600

I use this method of fencing on my cluster.  With RHCS, there is a supplied fencing script for DRAC cards.  The trick is you have to enable telnet on the DRAC cards for the supplied script to work (you can either do this through the web interface, or install the Dell Management Software and issue some command I don't remember right now).  Since the DRAC cards are (should be) on a private network, this is not too bad of a problem.

As far as I can tell, no one has done this- none of the existing
fence_ scripts appear to do the trick. The command line interface is
very different from a traditional Dell DRAC.

Has anyone already done this? I'm going to write a fence script to do
this, but I thought I'd check before I wasted my time.

Thanks everyone,
