Can RedHat 5.4 fence with IPMI port on UCS B-series blade ?

Hi to all,

Is it possible for a RedHat 5.4 installed on a UCS blade to fence with a IPMI (BMC) port of another blade ?

We created and applied a IPMI profile to the target (controlled) blade. We also created and activated a Serial over Lan policy on that blade.

Linux guys say they still can't reach ports 623 (maybe Serial over Lan) and 664 (I don't know this port). We have already cheched firewalls, no drops or blocking rules.

Has anyone succeeded configuring fencing on UCS blades ? And if so, could you explain how ?

Many thanks, best regards

At least we succeeded without using too much effort. IPMI inside UCS B series blade is itself able to be managed by RedHat 5.4, it's only a matter to configure it properly on RedHat.

No need to use Serial Over Lan policy, we have disabled it.

So this problem is solved, I can answer "yes" to my topic question.

Thank you anyway, goodbye
