Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, fence agents accepted boolean agent flags as secure or lanplus (ex: lanplus, lanplus=1, or lanplus=true). The options became unsupported, and caused hosts with those fence agents types to stop functioning. With this update, the fencing options for any existing hosts will have the new format. Any implicitly added options will also have the new format. For existing hosts, the fence agents work as normal after the package is updated. If the options field was defined as an encrypted field, redefine the options field manually to align to the new format. For new hosts, the new format (i.e <key>=<value>) should be defined in the options field.

Description Robert McSwain 2015-04-08 14:05:52 UTC
Description of problem:
When using 'ilo2' on the ilo2 hardware (HP DL380 G6),  I did not use any special (custom) options, and tried it with "secure" checkbox checked as well as unchecked. Using the "lanplus=true, power_wait=4" options work with "ipmilan" but none of those work with ilo2. 

ILO2 Hardware
"ilo2" -- does not work in any known combination of settings anymore
"ipmilan" -- works with "lanplus=true, power_wait=4" added

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEV 3.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade from 3.3 to 3.4 using ilo2 hardware, the ilo2 options no longer work for testing power fencing, but ipmilan works.

Actual results:
Required to use ipmilan as ilo2 fails to work anymore. 

Expected results:
ipmilan and ilo2 work

Comment 1 Eli Mesika 2015-05-13 07:58:34 UTC
First we have to understand why the iLO2 stopped working

please attach 

engine log

vdsm log of the host that was used to perform the fencing action 

It would be great if you could provide those for both 3.3 and 3.4 so we can see what was changed, but if you can't , the logs with failing 3.4 calls will be OK as well
