Hi,
i have a two node cluster with HP servers. For fencing i'd like to use the ipmilan fence-agent from the RHCS. They are included in the HAE update repository. I managed to run them on the first node, but before i know that everything is available on the HAE repository. I downloaded the fence-agents and the respective python packages from http://software.opensuse.org/search and installed the rpm's manually. It's working. As said, i find out afterwards that everything is on the repository. For the 2nd node i installed everything via the update repository, the dependencies were solved automatically. But the agent refused to work. There seems to be s.th. wrong with the python packages:

Code:
ha-idg-2:~ # stonith -vt rhcs/ipmilan ipaddr=146.107.235.15 login=root passwd=******** auth=password lanplus=1 -S

CRIT: rhcs_run_cmd: fence agent exit code: 1
CRIT: rhcs_status: 'ipmilan monitor' failed with rc -1
ERROR: rhcs/ipmilan device not accessible.
Code:
/var/log/messages says:
Jun 16 16:54:30 ha-idg-2 python: Failed: Unable to obtain correct plug status or plug is not available
The python packages fence-agents need are installed.

Code:
ha-idg-2:~ # rpm -qR fence-agents
python-curl
python-openssl
python-pexpect
python-requests
python-suds
...

ha-idg-2:~ # rpm -qa|grep -i python
...
python-requests-2.0.1-0.9.37
python-pexpect-3.1-0.7.1
python-curl-7.19.0-5.2.1.2
python-2.6.9-39.1
python-suds-0.4-0.20.1
python-openssl-0.7.0-1.17.2
...
The packages i installed manually on the first node have different version numbers. But i would expect that the needed packages from the HAE repository work fine.

Any ideas ?

Thanks.

Bernd
