PolyServe fencing with C-Class blades

I am attempting to setup PolyServe Matrix Server v3.6.1 on a pair of C-Class blades, and am at the point where I am setting up the fencing configuration.

I have found articles stating that this is supported using Web Management based fencing (http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c01728191〈=en&cc=us&taskId=125&prodSeriesId=3435148&prodTypeId=18964), and this article refers me to the installation guide, wherein it also mentions that you must use HP Web Management based fencing.

However, there are no details that I can find that explain how I need to set this up. Do I point the Remote Management Controller ID to the HP Bladesystem Onboard Administrator site, or to the individual blade ILO addresses (which in general is not recommended with these systems)? How do I need to setup the user that will be performing these functions (i.e. what rights does it need)?

Any help that the community can give would be appreciated.

Re: PolyServe fencing with C-Class blades

What you do is configure the Server based fencing for each node. You will use the node's ILO address not the OBA address. Each blade has its own IP for the ILO port.

You need to specify a username for a operator and its password. As long as the user can reboot the system via ILO it should work.

IF you are interested we have a class next week on 10/12 (its not full) where you install and fully configure the product including SQL database instances on the last day.
