Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203799
drac-fence fails to reboot latest drac/mc firmware
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:32:56 EDT
Description of problem:
RHTS installation instances have failed with the message
"Test was aborted by Scheduler
Netboot error: power-reset failed"
I've pulled the fenc-drac script and have had both success rebooting
and other times I've seen timeouts from pattern matching...it
appears the new drac fw may be spitting out more than what's
expected from time to time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Schedule an RHTS job(i.e. run fence_drac script) against a DRAC/MC w/firmware
v1.3; bpe1855-(1 or 10)
2. perl ~/scripts/fence_drac -a drac-1.lab.boston.redhat.com -l root -p calvin
-m Server-1 -o reboot
"failed: telnet returned: pattern match timed-out"
"OK" and the server will be rebooted.
The latest version of this agent has been commited to head and will be in 5.0
and 4.5. It works with the MC unit in the lab.
Fixing Product Name. Cluster Suite was merged into Red Hat Enterpise Linux for
5.0. In addition dlm, fence and ccs were merged into the cman package, so
bugzilla should reflect package name where those utilities are located.
