Description

fence_ipmilan is an I/O Fencing agentwhich can be used with machines controlled by IPMI.This agent calls support software ipmitool (http://ipmitool.sf.net/). WARNING! This fence agent might report success before the node is powered off. You should use -m/method onoff if your fence device works correctly with that option.

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