General Operations

Display the configuration

crmsh # crm configure show xml
pcs   # pcs cluster cib

crmsh can show a simplified (non-xml) syntax as well

crmsh # crm configure show

Display the current status

crmsh # crm status
pcs   # pcs status

also

# crm_mon -1

Node standby

Put node in standby

crmsh # crm node standby pcmk-1
pcs   # pcs cluster standby pcmk-1

Remove node from standby

crmsh # crm node online pcmk-1
pcs   # pcs cluster unstandby pcmk-1

crm has the ability to set the status on reboot or forever. pcs can apply the change to all the nodes.

Set cluster property

crmsh # crm configure property stonith-enabled=false
pcs   # pcs property set stonith-enabled=false

Resource manipulation

List Resource Agent (RA) classes

crmsh # crm ra classes
pcs   # pcs resource standards

List available RAs

crmsh # crm ra list ocf
crmsh # crm ra list lsb
crmsh # crm ra list service
crmsh # crm ra list stonith
pcs   # pcs resource agents ocf
pcs   # pcs resource agents lsb
pcs   # pcs resource agents service
pcs   # pcs resource agents stonith
pcs   # pcs resource agents

You can also filter by provider

crmsh # crm ra list ocf pacemaker
pcs   # pcs resource agents ocf:pacemaker

List RA info

crmsh # crm ra meta IPaddr2
pcs   # pcs resource describe IPaddr2

Use any RA name (like IPaddr2) from the list displayed with the previous command You can also use the full class:provider:RA format if multiple RAs with the same name are available :

crmsh # crm ra meta ocf:heartbeat:IPaddr2
pcs   # pcs resource describe ocf:heartbeat:IPaddr2

Create a resource

crmsh # crm configure primitive ClusterIP ocf:heartbeat:IPaddr2 \
        params ip=192.168.122.120 cidr_netmask=32 \
        op monitor interval=30s 
pcs   # pcs resource create ClusterIP IPaddr2 ip=192.168.0.120 cidr_netmask=32

The standard and provider (ocf:heartbeat) are determined automatically since IPaddr2 is unique. The monitor operation is automatically created based on the agent's metadata.

Display a resource

crmsh # crm configure show
pcs   # pcs resource show

crmsh also displays fencing resources. The result can be filtered by supplying a resource name (IE ClusterIP):

crmsh # crm configure show ClusterIP
pcs   # pcs resource show ClusterIP

crmsh also displays fencing resources.

Display fencing resources

crmsh # crm resource show
pcs   # pcs stonith show

pcs treats STONITH devices separately.

Display Stonith RA info

crmsh # crm ra meta stonith:fence_ipmilan
pcs   # pcs stonith describe fence_ipmilan

Start a resource

crmsh # crm resource start ClusterIP
pcs   # pcs resource enable ClusterIP

Stop a resource

crmsh # crm resource stop ClusterIP
pcs   # pcs resource disable ClusterIP

Remove a resource

crmsh # crm configure delete ClusterIP
pcs   # pcs resource delete ClusterIP

Modify a resource

crmsh # crm resource param ClusterIP set clusterip_hash=sourceip
pcs   # pcs resource update ClusterIP clusterip_hash=sourceip

Delete parameters for a given resource

crmsh # crm resource param ClusterIP delete nic
pcs   # pcs resource update ClusterIP ip=192.168.0.98 nic=

List the current resource defaults

crmsh # crm configure show type:rsc_defaults
pcs   # pcs resource rsc defaults

Set resource defaults

crmsh # crm configure rsc_defaults resource-stickiness=100
pcs   # pcs resource rsc defaults resource-stickiness=100

List the current operation defaults

crmsh # crm configure show type:op_defaults
pcs   # pcs resource op defaults

Set operation defaults

crmsh # crm configure op_defaults timeout=240s
pcs   # pcs resource op defaults timeout=240s

Set Colocation

crmsh # crm configure colocation website-with-ip INFINITY: WebSite ClusterIP
pcs   # pcs constraint colocation add ClusterIP with WebSite INFINITY

With roles

crmsh # crm configure colocation another-ip-with-website inf: AnotherIP WebSite:Master
pcs   # pcs constraint colocation add Started AnotherIP with Master WebSite INFINITY

Set ordering

crmsh # crm configure order apache-after-ip mandatory: ClusterIP WebSite
pcs   # pcs constraint order ClusterIP then WebSite

With roles:

crmsh # crm configure order ip-after-website Mandatory: WebSite:Master AnotherIP
pcs   # pcs constraint order promote WebSite then start AnotherIP

Set preferred location

crmsh # crm configure location prefer-pcmk-1 WebSite 50: pcmk-1
pcs   # pcs constraint location WebSite prefers pcmk-1=50

With roles:

crmsh # crm configure location prefer-pcmk-1 WebSite rule role=Master 50: \#uname eq pcmk-1
pcs   # pcs constraint location WebSite rule role=master 50 \#uname eq pcmk-1

Move resources

crmsh # crm resource move WebSite pcmk-1
pcs   # pcs resource move WebSite pcmk-1

crmsh # crm resource unmove WebSite
pcs   # pcs resource clear WebSite

A resource can also be moved away from a given node:

crmsh #
pcs   # pcs resource ban Website pcmk-2

Remember that moving a resource sets a stickyness to -INF to a given node until unmoved
Also, pcs deals with constraints differently. These can be manipulated by the command above as well as the following and others

crmsh #
pcs   # pcs constraint list --full
pcs   # pcs constraint remove cli-ban-Website-on-pcmk-1

Create a clone

crmsh # crm configure clone WebIP ClusterIP meta globally-unique=true clone-max=2 clone-node-max=2
pcs   # pcs resource clone ClusterIP globally-unique=true clone-max=2 clone-node-max=2

Create a master/slave clone

crmsh # crm configure ms WebDataClone WebData \
        meta master-max=1 master-node-max=1 \
        clone-max=2 clone-node-max=1 notify=true
pcs   # resource master WebDataClone WebData \
        master-max=1 master-node-max=1 clone-max=2 clone-node-max=1 \
        notify=true
