IPMI fence agents not working properly.

SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 11 Service Pack 4
Using ipmitool to test and the only interface option that works is the "open" interface.
Example: This command would actually reset the local host rather than host specified with the -H option.
ipmitool -I open -U <iLO admin user> -H <remote host iLO interface ip> power reset
When IPMI/DCMI over LAN is disabled, iLO disables IPMI/DCMI over the LAN. Server-side IPMI/DCMI applications are still functional when this feature is disabled. This is why the only interface option that could be used was "-I open" and seemed to ignore the "-H <remote host>" option.
To test the IPMI device use ipmitool command ('zypper in ipmitool').
# /usr/bin/ipmitool -I lanplus -U <USER_NAME> -P <PASSWORD> -H <IPMI_DEVICE_IP> chassis status
To connect to local IPMI interface and see "lan" information you can use the following command.
# /usr/bin/ipmitool -I open lan print
To show other commands and how to use this tool.
# man ipmitool
To display information regarding cluster stonith resource external/ipmi
# crm ra info stonith:external/ipmi
