Hi all,
I was designing a 2 node cluster and I was going to use 2 servers DELL
PowerEdge 1950. I was going to buy a DRAC card to use for fencing but
running several commands in the servers I have noticed that when I run this
#ipmitool lan print
Set in Progress : Set Complete
Auth Type Support : NONE MD2 MD5 PASSWORD
Auth Type Enable : Callback : MD2 MD5
                        : User : MD2 MD5
                        : Operator : MD2 MD5
                        : Admin : MD2 MD5
                        : OEM : MD2 MD5
IP Address Source : Static Address
IP Address :

Cipher Suite Priv Max : aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
                        : X=Cipher Suite Unused
                        : c=CALLBACK
                        : u=USER
                        : o=OPERATOR
                        : a=ADMIN
                        : O=OEM

does this mean that I already have an ipmi card (not configured) that I can
use for fencing? if the anwser is yes, where hell must I configure it? I
don´t see wher can I do it.

If I haven´t a fencing device which one do you recommed to use?

Thanks in advance
