Cluster Suite could not fence ILO Blade BL860c

Hi to all,

I have a problem regarding ILO fencing in RHEL 5.4 Cluster Suite.

I tried to fence it manualy
fence_ilo -a -l Admin -p Admin -o off -v
the result is: Unable to connect/login to fencing device
This seems not true as i can login successfully from telnet with given UN & PASS in Conga config.
I also installed the latest drivers, but the result is the same.

My current version of MP fw is:

Current firmware revisions

MP FW : T.03.12
BMC FW : 05.36
EFI FW : ROM A 07.15, ROM B 07.15
System FW : ROM A 04.21, ROM B 04.21, Boot ROM A
PDH FW : 50.07
UCIO FW : 03.0b
PRS FW : 00.08 UpSeqRev: 02, DownSeqRev: 05
PIC FW : 00.05

Does the RHEL 5.4 Cluster Suite fence version work on "MP FW : T.03.12"?

I have attached the cluster.config file and the logs from the cluster, for more details, if somebody needs more info, please let me know.

Could anybody help me on this?

Thanks and

Best Regards,
