We are trying to configure a RHEL cluster using two Dell Servers (Power Edge R610) with iDRAC 6. We intend to use the DRAC as the fencing device. We have installed 32 bit RHEL 5.4 OS and the cluster packages.
When we are trying to test the fencing manually from one of the member nodes, we are getting the following error :-
[root drmail2 ~]# fence_drac5 -a 10.50.4.22 -l root -p calvin -x -c "admin1->" -o status
Unable to connect/login to fencing device
But we are able to login to the DRAC using ssh as shown below:-
[root drmail2 ~]# ssh 10.50.4.22
root 10 50 4 22's password:
But when we enable the telnet service in the iDRAC card then we are getting the desired output.
[root drmail2 ~]# fence_drac5 -a 10.50.4.22 -l root -p calvin -c "admin1->" -o status
Any clue please?
