Pacemaker cluster (stonith:fence_idrac) device is stopped whenever there is a configuration task carried out in network switch

Latest response

Hi,

We have a Red hat failover cluster with pacemaker which has two nodes with iDRAC as the fencing device. However, when there is a any kind of configuration change in Network switch side fencing resources get stopped.

Are there some parameters that we need to adjust?
What does it mean by "Failed Fencing Actions"?

Thanks,
