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_CHARACTERISTICS

Where XXXXXXX is the name of the virtual machine used in the authuser field of the request. This virtual machine also has to be authorized to access the system's directory manager.

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.
