fence_bladecenter — Fence agent for IBM BladeCenter

Description

fence_bladecenter is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with IBM Bladecenters with recent enough firmware that includes telnet support. It logs into a Brocade chasis via telnet or ssh and uses the command line interface to power on and off blades.

fence_bladecenter accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_bladecenter can be run by itself with command line options.  This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
