To test, hang the host (echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger), then try to force 
it to power off with wol. If this succeeds, you are in business. I have 
my doubts though.

Please do. If you can though, it will make IPMI far less needed. :)

I'm not sure about the internals of cman, so I am not sure which machine 
actually sends the fence command. I do know that it has to come from a 
machine with quorum, and I do believe it is handled by the cluster 
manager. It's not like pacemaker where a DC is clearly defined.

I'll try to sort out how the internals work and will let you know.
