NAME

       fence_ipmilan - Fence agent for IPMI over LAN

DESCRIPTION

       fence_ipmilan  is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with machines controlled by IPMI.
       This agent calls support software using ipmitool (http://ipmitool.sf.net/).

       To use fence_ipmilan with HP iLO 3 you have to enable lanplus option (lanplus  /  -P)  and
       increase wait after operation to 4 seconds (power_wait=4 / -T 4)

       fence_ipmilan  accepts  options  on  the  command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends
       parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_ipmilan can be run by itself  with
       command  line  options.  This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from
       scripts.

PARAMETERS


       -A     IPMI Lan Auth type (md5, password, or none)

       -a     IPMI Lan IP to talk to

       -p     Password (if required) to control power on IPMI device

       -S     Script to retrieve password (if required)

       -P     Use Lanplus

       -l     Username/Login (if required) to control power on IPMI device

       -o     Operation to perform. Valid  operations:  on,  off,  reboot,  status,  list,  diag,
              monitor or metadata (Default Value: reboot)

       -t     Timeout (sec) for IPMI operation

       -C     Ciphersuite to use (same as ipmitool -C parameter)

       -M     Method to fence (onoff or cycle) (Default Value: onoff)

       -T     Wait X seconds after on/off operation (Default Value: 2)

       -f     Wait X seconds before fencing is started

       -v     Verbose mode

ACTIONS


       on     Power on machine.

       off    Power off machine.

       reboot Reboot machine.

       status This returns the status of the plug/virtual machine.

       diag
               The operational behavior of this is not known.

       list   List  available  plugs  with  aliases/virtual machines if there is support for more
              then one device. Returns N/A otherwise.

       monitor
              Check if fencing device is running. List available plugs/virtual  machines  or  get
              status of machine (if it does not support more).

       metadata
               The operational behavior of this is not known.
