Comment 5 Lon Hohberger 2008-03-03 16:28:16 EST
Initial notes:

(a) Username is required on this switch; not just password
(b) Switch supports ssh
(c) /x,y *does not work* despite the help saying it should.

   RSM> /x,y

   Invalid command or syntax entered.



Comment 6 Lon Hohberger 2008-03-03 16:29:18 EST
(d) Users should increase the Boot Delay to a minimum of 5 seconds.  0.5 seconds
is too short.
Comment 7 Lon Hohberger 2008-03-03 16:35:27 EST
(e) the switch supports background operation - e.g.:

RSM> /boot 1,y

Plugs to be booted

Plug 1: Outlet1

(f) The switch supports multiple logins, making effective serialization of
fencing difficult.  This can be changed in the network menu (/N) option 31.
Comment 8 Lon Hohberger 2008-03-03 16:38:32 EST
Note: (f) is only a big deal in 2-node clusters, where serialization of fencing
is critical.  Worst-case is that both nodes shoot each other at the same time.

(c) works
/ON 4,y 
Comment 10 Lon Hohberger 2008-03-17 17:25:23 EDT
Specifically, I meant /X - the exit command - not all commands.

The ips800 accepts /x,y to logout of the system - the RSM does not.

Comment 11 Marek Grac 2008-03-28 12:29:37 EDT
New agent for WTI devices works, it is available in GIT master branch (package
pexpect needed)
Comment 12 Marek Grac 2008-05-20 06:05:42 EDT
Support is in RHEL5 branch
