fence_manual - program run by fenced as a part of manual I/O Fencing
fence_manual is run by fenced. It creates a fifo and waits for
its counter-part fence_ack_manual(8) to acknowledge that a failed node
has been reset. fence_ack_manual(8) should only be run after the operator
has reset the faulty node. While waiting for the manual acknowledgement,
fence_manual also watches for the faulty node to rejoin the cluster;
if it does, it's taken as an acknowledgement and completes.
Note: fence_manual is provided for use during testing and evaluation
only. Sites should not use fence_manual as the primary fencing method
on a production cluster.
