[Linux-cluster] fence_ilo

I have a 2 node cluster (xen1 and xen2) running on dl380 G3's. There are
2 virtual machines running on these. From first node from the shell
command line I can fence the 2nd  node through the hp lights out port
using /sbin/fence_ilo -a -l aking -p password -v. I can
also do the same from the second node and successfully fence the first
node. When I fence the node that has control of one or more virtual
machines they are migrated to the other node. 

If I fence a node in Luci this works too. 

However, if I have a node running one or more virtual machines and run
/sbin/reboot -f on that node, in /var/log/messages in the other node I
get messages such as 

xen1 fenced[3126]: agent "fence_ilo" reports: Unable to connect/login to
fencing device

xen1 fenced[3126]: fence "" failed


Can anyone advise why this is happening?
