4.8. Egenera BladeFrame

Table 4.9, “Egenera BladeFrame” lists the fence device parameters used by fence_egenera, the fence agent for the Egenera BladeFrame.

Table 4.9. Egenera BladeFrame

luci Field cluster.conf Attribute Description
Name name A name for the Egenera BladeFrame device connected to the cluster.
CServer cserver The host name (and optionally the user name in the form of username@hostname) assigned to the device. Refer to the fence_egenera(8) man page for more information.
ESH Path (optional) esh The path to the esh command on the cserver (default is /opt/panmgr/bin/esh)
Username user The login name. The default value is root.
lpan lpan The logical process area network (LPAN) of the device.
pserver pserver The processing blade (pserver) name of the device.
Delay (optional) delay The number of seconds to wait before fencing is started. The default value is 0.
Unfencing unfence section of the cluster configuration file When enabled, this ensures that a fenced node is not re-enabled until the node has been rebooted. This is necessary for non-power fence methods (that is, SAN/storage fencing). When you configure a device that requires unfencing, the cluster must first be stopped and the full configuration including devices and unfencing must be added before the cluster is started. For more information about unfencing a node, see the fence_node(8) man page.
Figure 4.8, “Egenera BladeFrame” shows the configuration screen for adding an Egenera BladeFrame fence device.

The following command creates a fence device instance for an Egenera BladeFrame device:
ccs -f cluster.conf --addfencedev egeneratest agent=fence_egenera user=root cserver=cservertest
The following is the cluster.conf entry for the fence_egenera device:

  <fencedevice agent="fence_egenera" cserver="cservertest" name="egeneratest" user="root"/>
