[Linux-HA] RPS10 Stonith Problem

OK I've managed to get the "RPS-10 Ready" response using minicom, 
however the only way I have been able to do this is by disconnecting the 
power to the RPS10 and then re-connecting it.  When the power is 
re-connected the "RPS-10 Ready" response displays in minicom.

I have tried to hangup and initialise the connection with minicom (as I 
have seen suggested) however no response appears to be sent from the 
RPS10.  I have tested with two different RPS10 units and had the same 

After toggling the power on the RPS10 I receive:

Plug 0 Off
Plug 0 On

I admit that there could be problems with my serial connection.  I could 
only find one serial cable in my office and I have no idea how old it is 
or if there are any problems with it.  I have new serial cables arriving 

Could it be possible that the serial cable itself is preventing stonith 
from receiving the response from the RPS10?
