Thank's for your answer. I went trough the documentation this morning
and found the same.
By the way: The fence_ipmilan tool has a problem if the password
contains a character which is interpreted by the shell as for example
> It is not necessary to develop a fencing agent for SUN. Just use the

> How to do it:
> Create a user for fencing through the SUN Remote Service Board Web
> give this user full rights.
> Install if not already done: OpenIPMI and OpenIPMI-tools
> Test the fencing with the following command:
> fence_ipmilan -l username -p password -a IPAddresse-management -o
> This should give you back something like:
> Getting status of IPMI:192.168.160.12...Spawning: '/usr/bin/ipmitool
> lan -H
> IPaddress -U username -P password -v chassis power status'...
> Chassis power = On
> For SUN Fire V40Z servers fencing will also work with IPMI, but it is
> bit different, as it only support IPMI 1.5:
> Log in through ssh to the Remote Service board, enable ipmi:
> ipmi enable channel lan
> (uhh, you should give ipmi a password, but don't ask how, look into
> The fencing command looks like the following:
> fence_ipmilan -p password -a IPAddresse-management -o status -v
> Note that there is no Username!
