This appears to be a problem below fence_ipmilan.

My first guess would be that something is lower-casing the "A". Can you
create a user "administrator" and if so, does that work? Have you tried
putting the user name in double-quotes (no idea if that would make a
difference)? ie: '... -U "Administrator" ...'?
