Comment 1 Adam "mantis" Manthei 2005-03-14 18:39:54 EST
At the moment, the DRAC 3 firmware lacks the ability to query the
current power state of a node.  This means that there there is no way
of checking to see if a node is actually powered off or not.  As a
result, it is not possible to safely create a fencing agent that uses
the DRAC cards until the ability to query the power status has been

Marking this bug as DEFERRED until Dell implements this important feature.
