fence_ibm_vpc - Man Page

Fence agent for IBM Cloud VPC

Description

fence_ibm_vpc is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with IBM Cloud VPC to fence virtual machines.

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