Hi Yan,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Oops--spell check doesn't help here.

yang ~ # setserial -a /dev/ttyS2
/dev/ttyS2, Line 2, UART: 16550A, Port: 0x03e8, IRQ: 4
        Baud_base: 115200, close_delay: 50, divisor: 0
        closing_wait: 3000
        Flags: spd_normal skip_test

Humm. Looks like the baud rate is too high--but isn't the rate set by the
application using the serial port? In fact there is a line setting the
serial port to 9600 in rps10.c.

I doubt that's the problem. These are new cables that came with the RPS-10

Isn't there a configuration file that's missing?

>> stonith: Config file syntax: <serial_device> <node> <outlet> [ <node>

Or is the information in the stonith man page out of date?
