Hi Ralf,

Unfortunately I can't fix this problem. We do not use ssh to connect to ilo/ilo2 machines but we use RIBCL (xml commands) over SSL. I'm aware that there is support for ilo/ilo2 but until recently (I guess ilo2 v1.70+) there was no option to do 'non-graceful shutdown' from ssh cli. Graceful (or proper) shutdown is not usable for cluster purposes. 

In some cases it is possible to use (slightly modify) fence_ilo_mp which was developed for iLO MP where we uses ssh to connect to the fencing device.
