fence_ibmz - Man Page

Fence agent for IBM z LPARs

Description

fence_ibmz is a power fencing agent which uses the HMC Web Services API to fence IBM z LPARs.

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