I have a 2 node cluster (xen1 and xen2) running on dl380 G3’s. There are 2 virtual machines running on these. From first node from the shell command line I can fence the 2nd node through the hp lights out port using /sbin/fence_ilo –a 192.168.1.53 –l aking –p password –v. I can also do the same from the second node and successfully fence the first node. When I fence the node that has control of one or more virtual machines they are migrated to the other node.
If I fence a node in Luci this works too.
However, if I have a node running one or more virtual machines and run /sbin/reboot –f on that node, in /var/log/messages in the other node I get messages such as
xen1 fenced: agent "fence_ilo" reports: Unable to connect/login to fencing device
xen1 fenced: fence "192.168.50.116" failed
Can anyone advise why this is happening?
