Re: [Linux-cluster] APC Power switch question

Title: Re: [Linux-cluster] APC Power switch question

I just acquired 2 APC Power Switches my self, my servers are dell, so my plan is to use the APC as a primary and drac as a secondary fencingdevice.

My cluster as one interface for production traffic and another for cluster traffic which is a private non routed network.

Can the fencing devices be connected to the production? Or they have to been on the same network for cluster traffic?

Thanks for the answer. I have actually named switches in a 3 node cluster and will set them up accordingly.

THis is how cluster.conf looks like, I am finishing the setup for dev03.

        <fencedevice agent="fence_scsi" name="dev02_scsi"/>
        <fencedevice agent="fence_scsi" name="dev03_scsi"/>
        <fencedevice agent="fence_scsi" name="dev04_scsi"/>
        <fencedevice agent="fence_apc" ipaddr="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" login="xxxxxx" name="PCPS01_dev02" passwd="xxxxxx1"/>
        <fencedevice agent="fence_apc" ipaddr="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" login="xxxxxx" name="PCPS02_dev02" passwd="xxxxxx1"/>
        <fencedevice agent="fence_apc" ipaddr="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" login="xxxxxx" name="PCPS01_dev04" passwd="xxxxxx1"/>
        <fencedevice agent="fence_apc" ipaddr="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" login="xxxxxx" name="PCPS02_dev04" passwd="xxxxxx1"/>

        It is the outlet number on the switch...or the name of the outlet if you
        have assigned a name to it using the APC firmware application

        Certain APC switch models can be ganged together. If you are using the
        switches standalone (which you are, it seems from the above) just leave
        this field blank.
