NAME

fence_ipmilan - Fence agent for IPMI over LAN  

DESCRIPTION

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

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