evaluating parameters and testing of STONITH (HEARTBEAT)
This document (3232493) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10
you will get a list like:
the next step is to know which parameters your device will use, for this we assume that you use an "riloe", so you issue
stonith -t external/riloe -n
which will give you
hostname ilo_hostname ilo_user ilo_password ilo_can_reset ilo_protocol ilo_powerdown_method
these are the parameters necessary. Please keep in mind that the parameters needed are different with the different plugins. Don't expect the parameters to be the same for different devices.
To test you would issue now somthing similar to this, adapted to your needs of course:
stonith -t external/riloe hostname=guest_name ilo_hostname=guest_ilo_name ilo_user=rolf ilo_password=blubber ilo_can_reset=0 ilo_protocol=2.0 ilo_powerdown_method=button -l
Please notice that the STONITH man page states that
should precede any parameter given. But this is only valid for heartbeat version 1, heartbeat version 2 expects you to give the name of the parameter and its value, without a preceding -p.
After this you have all information needed to setup a STONITH device in heartbeat and you testet its functionality.
