That's expected. Not all command-line tools are supported when run on
Pacemaker Remote nodes. In this case, "pcs status" is doing "crm_node
-l" which is not yet supported.

The primary design goal was to enable commands known to be used by
resource agents. Enabling all commands is a goal for future versions.
