Response is indeed very fast when trying with the agent. With tcpdump on the node I try with the agent, I see ssh packets go to and from the apc switch.

When ssh-iing to the apc switch, it takes about 2 or 3 seconds before I get the password prompt, and then I see :
user 1 1 1 1's password:

I think I have found the problem... Looking at fence_apc, I see :

options["ssh_options"] = "-1 -c blowfish"

Now, if I add this to my ssh command like so :

ssh -1 -c blowfish user 1 1 1 1

I get :

Protocol major versions differ: 1 vs. 2

So they drop support for ssh v1. Unfortunately old versions were not usable with v2. I can make ssh_options tunable and not only pre-set.

So, there is no ssh version 1 on this version of the apc switrch. I commented out that line in /usr/sbin/fence_apc, and now the fence agent is able to establish the connection, but it cannot go any further.

Add "cmd_prompt" into device_opt in fence_apc. Then you will have possibility to set --command-prompt to "apc>".

Both fixes will be simple, feel free to create bugzilla entry for them.
