Subject: [Linux-PowerEdge] rhcs and fencing agents for idrac7

anyone using RHCS and idrac7 as a fencing device?

I'm deploying RHCS on RH EL 5.8 and fence_idrac5 doesn't work.

I found a technote from Red Hat (175603): the specified environment is RHEL 6 and the solution seems to use fence_ipmilan agent.

There is also a warning regarding OMSA:

Please be aware that there is issue when using Dell OpenManage repository. Dell repository will overwrite IPMItool with a version that does not support the LanPlus protocol. This will lead to fencing failing if the fence_agent is configured to use encryption.

As a workaround please remove the systems from the Dell OM channel after installing the OM tools "

Is this still true? What version of OMSA is supposed to work and integrates with a Dell R720 and iDRAC7?

Thanks in advance,
