fence_cpint(8) I/O Fencing agent for GFS on s390 and zSeries VM clusters


fence_cpint [OPTION]...


fence_cpint is an I/O Fencing agent used on a virtual machine running GFS in a s390 or zSeries VM cluster. It uses the cpint package to send a CP LOGOFF command to the specified virtual machine. For fence_cpint to execute correctly, you must have the cpint module installed, and hcp in your PATH. NOTE: for fence_cpint to send a command to another virtual machine, the machine executing it must either be a privilege class C user or it must be the secondary user of the virtual machine to be fenced. This means that unless all of you GULM server nodes are privilege class C, fence_cpint can only be used with SLM.

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