NAME

       fence_sanbox2 - I/O Fencing agent for QLogic SANBox2 FC switches

SYNOPSIS

       fence_sanbox2 [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

       fence_sanbox2  is  an  I/O  Fencing agent which can be used with QLogic
       SANBox2 FC switches.  It logs into a  SANBox2  switch  via  telnet  and
       disables  a  specified  port.   Disabling  the  port which a machine is
       connected  to  effectively  fences  that   machine.    Lengthy   telnet
       connections  to  the  switch  should  be avoided while a GFS cluster is
       running  because  the  connection  will  block  any  necessary  fencing
       actions.

       fence_sanbox2  accepts  options  on  the  command  line as well as from
       stdin.  fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the  agent.
       fence_sanbox2  can  be run by itself with command line options which is
       useful for testing.

       After a fence operation has taken  place  the  fenced  machine  can  no
       longer  connect  to the switch.  When the fenced machine is ready to be
       brought back into the GFS cluster (after reboot) the  port  on  the  FC
       switch  needs  to be enabled. This can be done by running fence_sanbox2
       and specifying the enable action.
