Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 428845
fence_ilo can not recognize option="off" but fence_wti can

Description of problem:
I have a cluster system on my lab with WTI fencing device. At that time, I add
an fence_method option "option=off" to the cluster.conf, so the fencing action
will power off the destinate server instead of reboot it.
This is fence option:
<device name="wti" port="6" option="off"/>
Please refer to attached file for the original file cluster.conf.
But when I use the same option on fence_ilo, it doesn't work. This is the error.
agent "fence_ilo" reports: parse error: unknown option "option=off"
My question is:
I found fence_ilo can work with method option : action="off",
This option is not hardware-related, can we make it identical on all fence_*
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHCS 4 & RHCS 5 both have the issue.
Install a RHEL4/5 cluster system on HP system. to use fence_ilo as fence device.
Add the method option "option="off"" to fence_ilo and make it active.
Fence failed to work.
fence_ilo can work well

As a workaround, you can use action="off" but I'll fix the script to take either
action or option.
We will accept both of them, proposed patch is in #433536
