Description

fence_ipmilanplus is a Power Fencing agent which 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.

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

-C,  --cipher=[cipher]

Ciphersuite to use (same as ipmitool -C parameter)

--hexadecimal-kg=[key]

Hexadecimal-encoded Kg key for IPMIv2 authentication

-a,  --ip=[ip]

IP address or hostname of fencing device

-u,  --ipport=[port]

TCP/UDP port to use for connection with device (Default Value: 623)

-P,  --lanplus

Use Lanplus to improve security of connection (Default Value: 1)

-m,  --method=[method]

Method to fence (onoff|cycle) (Default Value: onoff)

--login-timeout=[seconds]

Wait X seconds for cmd prompt after login (Default Value: 5)

--port-as-ip
