The following command creates a fence device instance for a HP iLO MP device:
ccs -f cluster.conf --addfencedev hpilomptest1 agent=fence_hpilo cmd_prompt=hpiLO-> ipaddr= \
 login=root passwd=password123 power_wait=60
The following is the cluster.conf entry for the fence_hpilo_mp device:

<fencedevice agent="fence_ilo_mp" cmd_prompt="hpiLO-&gt;" ipaddr="" login="root" name="hpilomptest1" passwd="password123" power_wait="60"/>
