NAME

fence_manual - program run by fenced as a part of manual I/O Fencing

 

SYNOPSIS

fence_manual [OPTION]...

 

DESCRIPTION

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.
