Sorry couldn't respond earlier as I do this on personal time (which as
useual limited for us IT guys and gals ;-) ) and not during work per

Do not run fence script from the node that you want to fence.

Let us say you want to fence node 3.
1. Try pinging the node 3's IPMI from node 4. I should be successful
2. Issue the fence command from Node 4 with IP of Node 3 IPMI as argument .


With warm regards
