If you paste your cluster config, it's pretty easy to convert that to 
the command line call. The attributes have matching command line 
switches (the man page should cover them). As for Dell, I believe you 
need to add an attribute to tell it what prompt string to look for (not 
100% on that though).

If you can sort out the 'fence_ipmilan .... -o status' command that 
works, we can help you fairly easily convert it to the cluster config
