Description Perry Myers 2010-05-10 14:00:31 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #590696 +++

Description of problem:
fence_vmware uses a proprietary perl API that is not in RHEL.  But the libvirt client in RHEL6 supports URIs to connect to both ESX and VirtualCenter/vSphere mgmt servers.

We should be able to point fence_virt on a virtual cluster node to point to the vSphere/VirtualCenter server for all other guests so that it can just ask the mgmt server to do the fencing for it.

This does not affect fence_virtd at all since in ESX deployments we have no host access so there will be no fence_virtd running.

This may also require backporting fence_virt or a similar agent to RHEL5 to support the RHEL5 use case.
