Fencing Methods- Cluster
I am trying to create a cluster using conga and i am stuck at creating a fencing. I have no idea as what fencing device i have on my server or what fencing method to choose in creating the cluster. Can someone help me in this issue.

I am trying to create cluster with 3 nodes (dell r910 machines with dell md3200 storage array )running redhat linux.

Check out the following links, I'm sure you'll find the answers in there.

Fence device and agent information (gives a list of possible devices and agents you can use to set up fencing.
Some Cluster FAQ
Bug with Dell iDRAC (don't know if it applies but since you mention Dell)
Configuring Fence devices

Kind regards,

If you ever get this accomplished -- setting up a Cluster using Conga -- please post a howTo of your steps.

I used the RedHat documentation, step by step, to make a 5 node cluster with NFS, and was unable to set anything up that worked. It would be nice to hear what corrections were needed.

I had some difficulty in setting up the cluster using conga as I had to go through several errors and issues when i used this. But was able to setup 2 node cluster using system-config-cluster and now i am trying to add couple of more nodes on to it....
