Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439444
fence_apc does not fence cluster node
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:55:12 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL 5.1 Cluster, kernel 2.6.18-53.1.13.el5
cman version cman-2.0.73-1.el5_1.1
APC Master switch APC7901, firmware apc_hw02_aos357_rpdu356.exe
Related to Bugzilla 245675,396581 but fix listed in those still does not work.
fencing of a node produces nothing. Tried fencing a node from luci and with
fence_node -O but neither works. No errors, process just sits there;
root 6756 5321 0 14:06 pts/0 00:00:00 fence_node -O 10.0.0.3
root 6757 6756 1 14:06 pts/0 00:00:00 /usr/bin/python /sbin/fence_apc
However, an interactive fence_apc command does work, so the switch is answering;
# fence_apc -a 10.0.0.24 -l apc -p apc -n 1 -o Status
Status check successful. Port 1 is ON
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Very. Sending a fence command from luci or with fence_node does not produce
any result or error.
Steps to Reproduce:
Apparently I was in error somehow. I rebuilt the cluster config from scratch
and now fencing works. You can close this case.
