fence_rackswitch(8) I/O Fencing agent for RackSaver RackSwitch


fence_rackswitch [OPTION]...


fence_rackswitch is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with the RackSaver RackSwitch. It logs into the RackSwitch and boots a specified plug. Using the http interface to the RackSwitch should be avoided while a GFS cluster is running because the connection may interfere with the operation of this agent.

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