[Linux-cluster] fence_scsi agent on RHEL 4.5

I am running a 2-node cluster with RHEL 4.5 Native cluster. I am using
scsi persistent reservation as my fencing device. I have noticed when I
shutdown one of the nodes, the fence_scsi agent on the surviving node
fails to fence the dying node. I get the following message:
Sep 11 16:18:13 troy fenced[3614]: agent "fence_scsi" reports: parse
error: unknown option "nodename=porsche"
Sep 11 16:18:13 troy fenced[3614]: fence "porsche" failed
it looks like the fence_scsi command is executed using with the nodename
parameter instead of the -n option.
when I run fence_scsi  -h I get the following (there is no nodename
fence_scsi [options]
  -n <node>        IP address or hostname of node to fence
  -h               usage
  -V               version
  -v               verbose
But the man page of the fence_scsi command talks about using both the
"-n" and "nodename=" options.
So, how do I make the fence_scsi run with the -n instead of the
nodename= option?
