fence_vixel - I/O Fencing agent for Vixel FC switches
fence_vixel is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with Vixel FC switches.
It logs into a Vixel switch via telnet and removes the specified port from the
zone. Removing the zone access from the port disables the port from being able
to access the storage.
fence_vixel accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin.
fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_vixel
can be run by itself with command line options which is useful for testing.
After a fence operation has taken place the fenced machine can no longer

back into the GFS cluster (after reboot) the port on the Vixel FC switch needs
to be enabled. In order to do this, log into the Vixel FC switch. Then go to:
