drac5 fencing issue for Linux 6.7

We are not able to complete our regression test for our 2 node cluster

we are powering off our one node directly , after which the resources are not moving to second node.

In /var/log/cluster/fenced.log we can see below messages :

node fencing failed : error from agent

We are using fence_dra5 n our cluster.conf file.

As I know drac5 fence agent is being used for Dell server. If you have HP server then please use fence_ipmilan agent for HP iLO3/4.

Re: drac5 fencing issue for Linux 6.7

Then you should configure your fencedevice agent="fence_ipmilan". You should not use drac5.
