You can not configure fencing without volume manager.
The essential components of VCS I/O fencing are as follows:

1.> LLT, GAB, and VXFEN drivers
2.> Coordinator disks with SCSI-3 Persistent Reservations (PR)
3.> Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) and Dynamic Multipathing (DMP)
4.> VCS I/O fencing data disks using CVM/DMP and VCS Disk Group agent

Take a look at page number 90 of VCS Install guide, to know how to configure IOFencing:
