Re: [Linux-cluster] fence_ilo halt instead reboot

HI Joseph, 

thanks for your answer.

I´m going to check this docs.

FWIW, and it its only my opinion, but if there is a problem and the other
nodes believe they need to fence it, are you sure you want it back online
w/o admin intervention?

Are you sure a reboot will *always* cure whatever caused it to be fenced?

In my situation I prefer to allways reboot because the machines are not accesible to me. Now I have a machine halted and I´m waiting for a person to push the power button. 

Perhaps in the final situation it would be better to halt the system, but now I need to make a reboot! 

What a long time to push a button!!!! perhaps they have to wait 108 minutes to push the button as in "LOST"  ;-))))
