There is a bug in fence_ipmilan agent: it exits with result code 2 on "monitor"/"status" command if chassis is powered off. Instead it should return 0 because "monitor" command should return fence device status, not chassis status.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Thanks for reporting this bug. You are right, we should return 0 if the fence device is working.
I have created a patch that should fix this. Yours patch will work correctly for 'monitor' but it will break 'status' as fence agent won't be able to return that chassis is powered off.

Looking through the code, it was probably just forgotten (ret is set to 0 for both on and off states but not used then).
I agree, your patch is cleaner.
