NAME fence_egenera - I/O Fencing agent for the Egenera BladeFrame

DESCRIPTION fence_egenera is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with the Egenera BladeFrame. It logs into a control blade (cserver) via ssh and operates on a process ing blade (pserver) identified by the pserver name and the logical process area network (LPAN) that it is in. fence_egenera requires that ssh keys have been setup so that the fence_egenera does not require a password to authenticate. Refer to ssh(8) for more information on setting up ssh keys.

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