Doc Text:
The fence-agents package on Red Hat Enterprise Linux dropped support of boolean flags being supplied to various scripts from the command line without a value. As a result, all existing flags stored in the database have been changed to explicitly set the boolean flag value. This ensures old settings of PM definitions that have the old format now work after upgrade.

After adding lanplus=1 in the Options box (Host tab -> Select Host -> Edit -> Click on Power Management -> in the Options box) in the Power Management Setup, the Power Management tests and fencing test were successful. The error message also was not reported.
