Fixed In Version: fence-agents-3.1.5-16.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
* Prior to this update, the fence agent for IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) could return an invalid return code when the "-M cycle" option was used. This invalid return code could cause invalid interpretation of success of a fence action, eventually causing the cluster to become unresponsive. This bug has been fixed and only predefined return codes are now returned in the described scenario.
