NAME fence_cisco_mds - Fence agent for Cisco MDS

DESCRIPTION fence_cisco_mds is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with any Cisco MDS 9000 series with SNMP enabled device.

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