Hi Gordan

Would it be possible to look at migrating this agent to SSH (more secure)
or to SNMP (less screen scraping)?

Look at fence_cisco as an example of snmp usage.

Long term maintainability of screen scraping is an issue with firmware changes.

Also it seems that card has IPMI support. If so, can use test with fence_ipmi?
Would remove the need for yet-another-agent ;)
