RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Andrew Beekhof 2015-12-01 22:39:33 UTC
Description of problem:

fence_compute works more like a fabric fencing device than a network power switch.
It should advertise the fabric_fencing and on_target options to avoid the need for ugly work-arounds in pacemaker.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. fence_compute -o metadata

Actual results:

	<action name="on"/>

Expected results:

	<action name="on" on_target="1" automatic="1"/>

Comment 1 Andrew Beekhof 2015-12-03 02:36:00 UTC

Comment 3 Asaf Hirshberg 2016-06-16 11:58:42 UTC

I got the following the expected result from fence-agents4.0.11-27

[root@overcloud-controller-2 ~]# fence_compute -o metadata|grep -A3 action
	<parameter name="action" unique="0" required="1">
		<getopt mixed="-o, --action=[action]" />
		<content type="string" default="off"  />
		<shortdesc lang="en">Fencing Action</shortdesc>
	<action name="on" on_target="1" automatic="1"/>
	<action name="off" />
	<action name="status" />
	<action name="list" />
	<action name="list-status" />
	<action name="monitor" />
	<action name="metadata" />

Did I missed something? as it fixed in fence-agents-4.0.11-38.el7

Comment 4 Andrew Beekhof 2016-06-16 23:10:47 UTC
They must have forgotten to close the bug

Comment 5 Oyvind Albrigtsen 2016-06-17 07:03:37 UTC

It was already fixed, so I set Resolves for this bz for fence-agents-4.0.11-38.el7, as that was missing from the changelog.
