Actually, I've recently had this same problem myself.
My second node went to fence the first node and what instead happened
was the fence tool hung because the ipmitool hung.
As far as I'm aware this was not always the case - I've been able to

Node02 can ping node01's address and it can ping node01's ipmi address
However ipmitool says it can not reach the ipmi address, even though I
Is anyone else having this issue? Possibly problem with ipmitool
