crm_report works best when run from a cluster node on a running cluster, but can be run from a stopped cluster node or a Pacemaker Remote node.

If neither --nodes nor --single-node is given, crm_report will guess the node list, but may have trouble detecting Pacemaker Remote nodes. Unless --single-node is given, the node names (whether specified by --nodes or detected automatically) must be resolvable and reachable via ssh.
