Description Jan Pokorný 2012-12-14 12:53:02 EST
From a recent discussion about fence_sanlock, it came out that fence_scsi
is another example of fence agent requiring unfence configured for a proper
function.  Contrary to fence_sanlock, fence_scsi man page does not document
this.  IMHO, any nontrivial restriction leading to nontrivial issues when
not abided should be documented.

# rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man8/fence_scsi.8.gz
Comment 1 Ryan O'Hara 2013-02-07 10:11:48 EST
The fence_scsi agent doesn't *require* unfencing, the cluster requires it. In other words, unfencing is a cluster concept. The fence_scsi agent can be used outside of cluster product, in which case unfencing is meaningless. NACK.
Comment 2 Jan Pokorný 2013-02-22 04:48:50 EST
Ah, ok.

If it is not even recommendable in general (is it?), please close the bug.
Comment 3 Jan Pokorný 2013-02-22 06:21:00 EST
Well, the whole man page seems to talk about fence_scsi in the context
of cluster, so this bug is completely valid.
Comment 4 Fabio Massimo Di Nitto 2013-04-17 05:31:03 EDT
Let´s add a note, that when fence_scsi is used in a cluster context, unfecing should be configured/executed.

This should make everybody happy.

I should add a similar note to the Cluster Administration manual so I'm cloning this as a documentation bug.
