Description Lon Hohberger 2005-05-12 15:33:44 EDT
Description of problem:

Some fence modules support multiple different attribute names for the same
setting.  For instance, they might accept "passwd" or "password" - which is bad,
because only one will be correctly handled.

I would love to address this for U4 - along with a comprehensive catalog of
every mutable parameter available in cluster.conf...the public has been crying
out for this :-)
Comment 4 Jim Parsons 2006-10-18 14:23:21 EDT
A comprehensive catalog of fencing parameters has been published at

Closing this bug. Feel free to reopen if it is desired that resources be spent
on allowing stdin args for all fence agents to work with passwd as well as password.
