NAME fence_drac - fencing agent for Dell Remote Access Card
DESCRIPTION fence_drac is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with the Dell Remote Access Card (DRAC). This card provides remote access to control- ling power to a server. It logs into the DRAC through the telnet inter- face of the card. By default, the telnet interface is not enabled. To enable the interface, you will need to use the racadm command in the racser-devel rpm available from Dell. To enable telnet on the DRAC:
[root]# racadm config -g cfgSerial -o cfgSerialTelnetEnable 1
[root]# racadm racreset
fence_drac accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_drac can be run by itself with command line options. This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
