I have just set it up, have not tested 100%, but what I have so far is:
1) create fence usernames and passwords ILO on each of your devices.
2) Update cluster.conf as follows:
        <clusternode name="worker1" nodeid="1">
                        <method name="fabric">
                                <device name="ilo-worker1"/>
       <!-- the rest of your nodes here -->
        <fencedevice name="ilo-worker1" agent="fence_ilo"
hostname="" login="fence" passwd="fencepassword"/>
        <!-- 1 fence device for each clusternode, with corrent hostname info -->

According to the docs, that SHOULD work, I am still having hanging
issues on access to certain files / directories on GFS, but still
pretty new to it, so not 100% sure whether its related to fencing or
