At http://sources.redhat.com/cluster/wiki/VMware_FencingConfig I see this:

"If you are using RHEL 5.5/RHEL 6 just install fence_agents package and

This package is available for RHEV-H (based on RHEL5.5) and is part
of RHEL 5.6.
So...
  - It's called fence-agents, not fence_agents (minor typo)
fixed
  - It's not available for RHEL or CentOS 5.5
it it available in some channels for RHEL - it is not part of base or cluster channel; I do not know about CentOS
... the wiki is mistaken on both of these counts, yes?


I've tried finding a fence-agents RPM I can use, but all the newer
ones have big disruptive dependencies (such as needing a newer glibc),
and older ones no longer seem to exist on the mirrors I've found
pointers to.  I can find no evidence that fence-agents was ever built
and distributed for any version of CentOS 5 / RHEL 5.

Am I on the wrong track here, or is this a reasonable path towards
getting a working vmware fencing agent for CentOS 5.5?
You can wait for CentOS 5.6 or you can use directly our git tree (cluster.git with branches RHEL5x) or fence-agents.git to have latest upstream version.
