Description Nicolas Ross 2011-04-08 15:00:03 EDT
Description of problem:

This power bar has a firmware that can't be used with fence_apc

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


How reproducible:

fence_apc --ip= --username=user --password=pass --plug=node101 --ssh

Steps to Reproduce:
1. call the above command
Actual results:

Node not fenced

Expected results:

Node fenced

Additional info:

There is 3 problems. First, ssh server on that bar is v2 only. So ssh_options (line 198) has to be commented out. Second, the prompt has changed to "apc>". So "cmd_prompt" has to be added to the device_opt array and --command-prompt="apc>" added to the command line. Next, the command to use the device has changed. Here's the output saved in the debug file after steps mentionned :

American Power Conversion               Network Management Card AOS

Type ? for command listing
Use tcpip command for IP address(-i), subnet(-s), and gateway(-g)

E101: Command Not Found

E101: Command Not Found


When I connect manually, here are the commands availaible :

bkLowLoad   bkNearOver  bkOverLoad  bkReading   bkRestrictn devLowLoad
devNearOver devOverLoad devReading  devStartDly humLow      humMin
humReading  olCancelCmd olDlyOff    olDlyOn     olDlyReboot olGroups
olName      olOff       olOffDelay  olOn        olOnDelay   olRbootTime
olReboot    olStatus    phLowLoad   phNearOver  phOverLoad  phReading
phRestrictn prodInfo    sensorName  tempHigh    tempMax     tempReading
userList    whoami

So the command to send would be :

olReboot node101

Like so :

apc>olReboot node101
E000: Success


and then "quit" to logout.

Does fence_apc_snmp work with this device?

I hadn't tested it. Yes, it does work with fence_apc_snmp.
