[Linux-cluster] fencing with IBM RAS II on Centos 5 cman start

I am attempting to use an IBM RSA II (Remote Supervisor Adapter) and my
fencing device, as it is listed in the dropdown menu of supported devices
when you create and configure a fencing device.

Is there a specific log I can tail to find out what's going on with my
fencing device and why it won't start?

Also, if any of you have familiarity with this device, how has it run for
you as a fence?  Anyhow, just interested in knocking out what appears to
be a minor error and not seeing any immediate reference to what logging
mechanism I should be consulting to troubelshoot GFS-related items.

To be clear, this is happening when I try to start cman.
