Lon - having reread that previous posting of yours, and esp the last
(c) ... If a host does a "graceful shutdown" when
you fence it via IPMI, you need to disable ACPI on that host (e.g. boot
with acpi=off). The server should turn off immediately (or within 4-5
seconds, like when holding an ATX power button in to force a machine
Just so I am absolutely sure about this: Is the above the only scenario
when would have to disable ACPI? e.g. a graceful shutdown is easy to
spot. If I don't see one in the logs, that means I can leave ACPI on?
