NAME

       fence_manual - program run by fenced as a part of manual I/O Fencing

SYNOPSIS

       fence_manual [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

       fence_manual  is  run  by  fenced.  It creates a fifo and waits for its
       counter-part fence_ack_manual(8) to acknowledge that a failed node  has
       been  reset.  fence_ack_manual(8) should only be run after the operator
       has  reset  the  faulty   node.    While   waiting   for   the   manual
       acknowledgement,  fence_manual  also  watches  for  the  faulty node to
       rejoin the cluster; if it does, it’s taken as  an  acknowledgement  and
       completes.

       Note:   fence_manual  is provided for use during testing and evaluation
       only.  Sites should not use fence_manual as the primary fencing  method
       on a production cluster.
