Hi all,

I'm configuring a FailOver-cluster with CentOS 5.3 on two Dell PowerEdge 
2950 with DRAC5 cards. The basic configuration with 
system-config-cluster worked fine after enabling telnet on the DRACs and 
I got the cluster running. Then I switched to ssh by manually editing 
the cluster.conf file, since system-config-cluster is not aware of 
fence_drac5. Unfortunately now the cluster.conf file is not readable 
anymore by system-config-cluster. I still want to use sys-con-clu, since 
there is still much to configure  (services, failover-domains,....). 
Except of using telnet and fence_drac until the end of the configuration 
process, I have no other idea how to manage that. DOes anyone know how 
to include fence_drac5 and the secure="1" attribute in cluster.conf and 
still using sys-con-clu?

All best


P.S. Is secure="1" in the right place?
