'list' option was not tested with that much entries but it's
functionality is not used anywhere yet. So it does not impact proper
function of fence agent.

'Plug is not available/...' in which format do you enter it. Proper one
is explained in manual page (/datacenter/vm/Discovered virtual
machine/myMachine) where myMachine is yours name. Alternatively you can
use option -U / uuid.
