Ugh, this is ugly. I'm evaluating oVirt currently myself and have
already suffered from a dead PSU that took down IPMI as well. I really
don't want to imagine what happens if the host with SPM goes down due to
a power failure :/ Is there really no other way? I guess multiple fence
devices are not possible right now. E.g. first try to fence via IPMI and
if that fails pull the plug via APC MasterSwitch. Any thoughts?
SPM would be down until you manually confirm shutdown in this case.
SPM doesn't affect running VMs on NFS/posix/local domains, and only
thinly provisioned VMs on block storage (iscsi/FC).
question, if no power, would the APC still work?
why not just use it to fence instead of IPMI?
(and helping us close the gap on support for multiple fence devices
would be great)
