Description Martin Tessun 2014-11-21 16:11:30 UTC
What is the nature and description of the request?  
  Add the needed default options to the iDrac7 fencing agent (lanplus at least)

Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)  
  As there is a new fencing opeiotn iDrac7, which does use ipmilan, it simply makes sense to have this work out of the box. Otherwise the ipmilan can be used as well. Currently it looks like both options really do the same.

How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)  
  Add lanplus to the default options for the iDrac7 fencing agent.

For each functional requirement listed, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.  
  If iDrac7 is chosen as fencing device, no more options should be necessary for the agent to work (especially lanplus)

Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat Bugzilla?  
  Not that I am aware of.

Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release would they like to target (i.e. RHEL5, RHEL6)?  
  RHEV 3.5 would be fine.

Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional input?  

List any affected packages or components.  
  ovirt-engine / database

Comment 3 Martin Tessun 2014-11-28 10:02:19 UTC
The following settings should be added ideally:

privlvl=OPERATOR, lanplus=yes, delay=10

As privlvl Operator is enough and Adminstrator would oppose additional risk.
The delay=10 is needed as a RHEVM system reset might result in just powering off the system instead of power cycling it.

Comment 4 Eli Mesika 2014-12-17 14:01:21 UTC
Please specify if those defaults should apply only for x86 hosts or also for PPC hosts

Comment 5 Julio Entrena Perez 2014-12-17 14:11:16 UTC
Dell probably does not manufacture PPC hosts, so that'd be x86 only.
