NAME fence_drac5 - Fence agent for Dell DRAC CMC/5

DESCRIPTION fence_drac5 is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with the Dell Remote Access Card v5 or CMC (DRAC). This device provides remote access to controlling power to a server. It logs into the DRAC through the telnet/ssh interface of the card. By default, the telnet interface is not enabled.

fence_drac5 accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_drac5 can be run by itself with command line options. This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
