fence_zvmip — Fence agent for use with z/VM Virtual Machines

Description

The fence_zvm agent is intended to be used with with z/VM SMAPI service via TCP/IP

To use this agent the z/VM SMAPI service needs to be configured to allow the virtual machine running this agent to connect to it and issue the image_recycle operation. This involves updating the VSMWORK1 AUTHLIST VMSYS:VSMWORK1. file. The entry should look something similar to this:

Column 1 Column 66 Column 131

| | |
V V V

XXXXXXXX ALL IMAGE_OPERATIONS

Where XXXXXXX is the name of the virtual machine used in the authuser field of the request.

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