Details

Updated fence-agents packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat fence agents are a collection of scripts for handling remote power
management for cluster devices. They allow failed or unreachable nodes to be
forcibly restarted and removed from the cluster.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, the fence_apc program was hard-coded with SSH1 connectivity. As a
consequence, fence-agents was unable to connect to power distribution units that
require SSH2 connectivity. This update introduces the "--ssh-options" option,
which makes it possible to specify SSH connectivity options in fence-agents.
Thus, all fencing agents that support SSH can now be adjusted to meet the SSH
requirements of the fencing device. (BZ#1070297)

Users of fence-agents are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant
