This part is tricky. At one hand, it is good thinking to throttle IO load.

On the other hand, as Jehan and Ulrich mentioned, `crm resource stop <rsc>` 
introduces "target‑role=Stopped" for each VirtualDomain, and have to do `crm 
resource start <rsc>` to changed it back to "target‑role=Started" to start them 
after the power outage.

Here, for SLES12SP5, `crm cluster run "crm cluster stop"` could help a little.

 From crmsh-4.4.0 onward, `crm cluster stop --all` is recommended to simplify 
the whole procedure to do the cluster wide shutdown.
