BMC IPMI configuration on centos 5.4 64 BIT Server
 
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

Regards,
paps

Sucks to be you:)

OTOH, I am in a similar boat and have different hardware across a two
cluster and I choose to perform the safest way I could think to fence
with the hardware I have, I wrote a Perl script to drop the ifAdminStatus
of the port that the data runs over on my switch. Aside from power
fencing with a separate device, this is pretty reliable (using drbd, so
no fabric switching options).

I have another nic for mgmt that uses iptables to make sure only ssh
runs through it.

I had to make my own, as the older fence_ifmib didn't do snmpv3, and
the newer one uses a myriad of python deps that aren't in 5.4, but
scheduled for 5.5.

Hit me offllist if you like.

If you are in India, get somehow the APC or any other power fencing or
put the authorities on to me I will tell and educate them.

I don't trust HCL much.
