8.4.2. Guest Node Resource Options

When configuring a virtual machine or LXC resource to act as a guest node, you create a VirtualDomain resource, which manages the virtual machine. For descriptions of the options you can set for a VirtualDomain resource, use the following command.
# pcs resource describe VirtualDomain
In addition to the VirtualDomain resource options, you can configure metadata options to both enable the resource as a guest node and define the connection parameters. Table 8.4, “Metadata Options for Configuring KVM/LXC Resources as Remote Nodes” describes these metadata options.
