DESCRIPTION fence_ipmilan is an I/O Fencing agentwhich can be used with machines controlled by IPMI.This agent calls support software ipmitool (http://ipmitool.sf.net/).

fence_ilo3 accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_ilo3 can be run by itself with command line options. This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
