fence_ilo_ssh configuration for resetting host is incorrect in RHEV.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • The fence agent fence_ilo_ssh (/usr/sbin/fence_ilo_ssh) is coded with a wrong ILO CLI command for rebooting host.
conn.send_eol("reset hard /system1")
  • It should be:
conn.send_eol("reset /system1 hard")
