2.5.1. Creating a Shared Fence Device

To create a shared fence device, follow these steps:

  1. At the detailed menu for the cluster (below the clusters menu), click Shared Fence Devices. Clicking Shared Fence Devices causes the display of the fence devices for a cluster and causes the display of menu items for fence device configuration: Add a Fence Device and Configure a Fence Device.


    If this is an initial cluster configuration, no fence devices have been created, and therefore none are displayed.

  2. Click Add a Fence Device. Clicking Add a Fence Device causes the Add a Sharable Fence Device page to be displayed (refer to Figure 2.1, “Fence Device Configuration”).

  3. At the Add a Sharable Fence Device page, click the drop-down box under Fencing Type and select the type of fence device to configure.

  4. Specify the information in the Fencing Type dialog box according to the type of fence device. Refer to Appendix B, Fence Device Parameters for more information about fence device parameters.

  5. Click Add this shared fence device.

  6. Clicking Add this shared fence device causes a progress page to be displayed temporarily. After the fence device has been added, the detailed cluster properties menu is updated with the fence device under Configure a Fence Device.
