The following command creates a fence device instance for a Cisco UCS device:
ccs -f cluster.conf --addfencedev ucs agent=fence_cisco_ucs ipaddr= login=root passwd=password123 \
The following is an example cluster.conf entry for the fence_cisco_ucs device as created using either Conga or ccs:

  <fencedevice agent="fence_cisco_ucs" ipaddr="" login="root" name="ciscoucstest1" \
    passwd="password123" power_wait="60" ssl="on" suborg="/org-RHEL/org-Fence/"/>
