  • How to setup fencing for Cisco UCS blades with the fence agent fence_cisco_ucs?
  • Need UCS-specific fencing agent for Cisco UCS systems. We can use ipmilan to do UCS fencing today, but there is currently no way to tie the BMC IP address to a UCS Service Profile. Therefore, there is no way to permanently guarantee that we know the IMPI address of a UCS blade for fencing.
