Description Shane Bradley 2011-03-22 12:13:00 EDT
Description of problem:
When a blade is removed from a blade chassis and is fenced with --missing-as-off option and an action of reboot the fence will fail.  This should not occur. The fence should succeed since it is not in the chassis.

For example the command that is used on blade that is removed from chassis:
$ /sbin/fence_bladecenter -a ibmbladectr1 -l admin -p password -n 6 --missing-as-off -o reboot
Connection timed out
$ echo $?

The action "off" will work as expected and returns 0.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove blade from a chassis
2. Fence the blade with missing_as_off option and reboot action
3. Fence will fail
Actual results:
A failed fence will occur.

Expected results:
A successful fence should occur.

Proposed patch

Fixing problem when prompt was not changed as expected.

Test case:

let's suppose that blade 6 is not here, and blade 5 is 

fence_bladecenter -l USER -p PASS -n 6 -a blade.control.com -o reboot

should not pass correctly

fence_bladecenter -l USER -p PASS -n 6 -a blade.control.com -o reboot -M

should pass correctly with message that waiting for power on timed out (but fencing was successfull)
