Comment 2 Adam "mantis" Manthei 2005-08-15 10:40:39 EDT
What version of fence_ilo are you using?  What architecture is the machine?  

There were some issues with ilo on acpid enabled machines, ia64 machines and
those with later versions of the firmware (1.70 and later).  These issues have
since been addressed in the RHEL3u6 and RHEL4u2 releases of GFS.  See bug #161352
Comment 3 Axel Thimm 2005-08-15 13:55:41 EDT
$FENCE_RELEASE_NAME="1.32.1", the system is a dual-xeon em64t, and the firmware
is 1.64 (e.g. below 1.70).

I'm not authorized to view bug #161352, could you summarize? I also don't have
access to prereleases/betas of RHEL4U2.
Comment 4 Adam "mantis" Manthei 2005-08-15 15:48:47 EDT
It's possible that em64t is having some of the same issues that ia64 was having.
 The basic gist is that the acpid was causing the nodes to interpret the power
off command as a gracefull poweroff and was causing poor interaction between the
ilo and GFS.  The issue was resolved with this check-in:

Let me know if this version of fence_ilo fixes the problem for you.
Comment 5 Axel Thimm 2005-08-15 17:12:46 EDT
The CVS version seems to work fine, thank you!

Any chance this will make it soon into rhn updates?
Comment 6 Adam "mantis" Manthei 2005-08-15 17:55:15 EDT
Since the CVS version works for you, I'm going to resolve this a duplicate of
bug #161352

The fix should be included in the next update to rhn.  It's in GFS-
for RHEL3 and fence-1.32.6-0 for RHEL4.
