FENCE_AGENT(8) System Manager's Manual FENCE_AGENT(8)

NAME

fence_redfish - I/O Fencing agent for Redfish

DESCRIPTION

fence_redfish is an I/O Fencing agent which can be used with Out-of-Band controllers that support Redfish APIs. These controllers provide remote access to control power on a server.

fence_redfish accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_redfish can be run by itself with command line options. This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
