The following command creates a fence device instance for a BladeSystem device:
ccs -f cluster.conf --addfencedev hpbladetest1 agent=fence_hpblade cmd_prompt=c7000oa> ipaddr=192.168.0.1 \
 login=root passwd=password123 missing_as_off=on power_wait=60
The following is the cluster.conf entry for the fence_hpblade device:

 <fencedevices>
  <fencedevice agent="fence_hpblade" cmd_prompt="c7000oa>" ipaddr="hpbladeaddr" ipport="13456" \
   login="root" missing_as_off="on" name="hpbladetest1" passwd="password123" passwd_script="hpbladepwscr" \
   power_wait="60"/>
 </fencedevices>
