NAME

       fence_vixel - I/O Fencing agent for Vixel FC switches

SYNOPSIS

       fence_vixel [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

       fence_vixel  is  an  I/O  Fencing agent which can be used with Vixel FC
       switches.  It logs into a Vixel  switch  via  telnet  and  removes  the
       specified  port  from the zone.  Removing the zone access from the port
       disables the port from being able to access the storage.

       fence_vixel accepts options on the command line as well as from  stdin.
       fenced  sends  parameters  through  stdin  when  it  execs  the  agent.
       fence_vixel 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 Vixel FC switch.   When  the  fenced  machine  is
       ready  to  be brought back into the GFS cluster (after reboot) the port
       on the Vixel FC switch needs to be enabled. In order to  do  this,  log
       into the Vixel FC switch. Then go to:

       config->zones->config   <port>   <comma-separated-list-of-ports-in-the-
       zone>

       Then apply

       Consult the Vixel manual for details
