Hi all,

  I am implementing two node cluster , but the hardware they given me
contains only the Base Board
Management controller (BMC) . Also I HEARD SOME BMC wont support power
fencing, how can i check my  There is no management port like HP ILO
or Dell DRAC for cluster fencing . This hardware belongs to the vendor
HCL. For BMC Configuration they are providing the exe setup file for
windows to configure IPMI  ip,usernmae and password but there is no
setup tools for centos 5.

     So i want  help from some one in configuring the IPMI from
Operating system level from OpenIpmi tools. if some one provide me the
step by step instruction or how to in configuring the IPMI to use
fence_ipmi on centos 5.4 x86_64 hardware .

Really its very urgent i have to handover the server in next 12 hours.
While googling i also came across the bug in ipmi of centos 5.4 is
there is any way to fix alos help me a lot.


Thanks in advance
