luci Field cluster.conf Attribute Description
Name name A name for the server with HP iLO support.
IP Address or Hostname ipaddr The IP address or host name assigned to the device.
IP Port (optional) ipport TCP port to use for connection with the device. The default value is 443.
Login login The login name used to access the device.

The following command creates a fence device instance for a HP iLO device:
ccs -f cluster.conf --addfencedev hpilotest1 agent=fence_hpilo ipaddr=192.168.0.1 login=root passwd=password123 \
 power_wait=60
The following is the cluster.conf entry for the fence_ilo device:

 <fencedevices>
  <fencedevice agent="fence_ilo" ipaddr="192.168.0.1" login="root" name="hpilotest1" passwd="password123" \
   power_wait="60"/>
 </fencedevices>
