Abstract

A method and system for node fencing in a cluster infrastructure is disclosed. Generally, fence operations are used to isolate, reboot or switch off errant nodes in a node cluster. The method and system disclosed herein allows complex and flexible fence operations using a simple common interface. Further, when additional operations are performed, changes to the cluster infrastructure are avoided.
