Steve, are you still seeing this issue and/or able to reproduce it? I can't seem to get it to reproduce with the RHEL 5.3.z build, and I wonder if it was fixed as a side effect of fixing another bug.

luci is unable to add gp-05-ipmi as a fence device for gp-05 using this config
i'm still hitting this bug. i've got a cluster which was previously managed with system-config-cluster, and luci is unable to work with the existing fence devices in this config.
[10:40:17 pjjw@gp-05:~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release ; uname -a ; sudo /usr/sbin/cman_tool version
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga)
Linux gp-03.gs.washington.edu 2.6.18-128.1.1.el5xen #1 SMP Mon Jan 26 14:19:09 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
6.1.0 config 144
steps to reproduce:
1. use above cluster.conf
2. select node gp-05.gs.washington.edu, and add the fence device gp-05-ipmi to the main fencing method.
actual results: error page displayed, fence not added
expected results: fence added.
i can work around this by deleting gp-05-ipmi from shared fence devices, then re-adding it in the node configuration window. i can't tell what's different, though, if anything, in cluster.conf when this is done.
caught in a lie! gp-05 is currently down for a rebuild, so I substituted gp-03's results, and it shows. however, i'm guessing the problem is with either luci or ricci, so i'll additionally submit that-
server where luci runs is:

[10:40:20 pjjw@gp-03:~]$ rpm -q ricci
fix verified, I can't reproduce the faulty behavior in luci-0.12.2-6.el5
