Description Ryan McCabe 2008-01-15 11:23:02 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #428243 +++

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.

How reproducible:

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_node node1

Actual results:

Fence failed to work.

Expected results:

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.
