fence_ibmblade — Fence agent for IBM BladeCenter over SNMP

Description

fence_ibmblade is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with IBM BladeCenter chassis. It issues SNMP Set request to BladeCenter chassis, rebooting, powering up or down the specified Blade Server.

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