4.16. HP iLO over SSH

The fence agents for HP iLO devices over SSH (fence_ilo_ssh), HP iLO3 devices over SSH (fence_ilo3_ssh), and HP iLO4 devices over SSH (fence_ilo4_ssh) share the same implementation. Table 4.17, “HP iLO over SSH, HP iLO3 over SSH, HPiLO4 over SSH (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 and later)” lists the fence device parameters used by these agents.

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.
Login login The login name used to access the device.
Password passwd The password used to authenticate the connection to the device.
Password Script (optional) passwd_script The script that supplies a password for access to the fence device. Using this supersedes the Password parameter.

TCP Port ipport UDP/TCP port to use for connections with the device; the default value is 23.
Force Command Prompt cmd_prompt The command prompt to use. The default value is 'MP>', 'hpiLO->'.
Method to Fence method The method to fence: on/off or cycle
Power Wait (seconds) power_wait Number of seconds to wait after issuing a power off or power on command.
Delay (seconds) delay The number of seconds to wait before fencing is started. The default value is 0.
Power Timeout (seconds) power_timeout Number of seconds to continue testing for a status change after issuing a power off or power on command. The default value is 20.
Shell Timeout (seconds) shell_timeout Number of seconds to wait for a command prompt after issuing a command. The default value is 3.
Login Timeout (seconds) login_timeout Number of seconds to wait for a command prompt after login. The default value is 5.
Times to Retry Power On Operation retry_on Number of attempts to retry a power on operation. The default value is 1.
