How can I set pacemaker cluster resources to start in order which are not necessarily colocated?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Specific resource(s) which are configured to run only on one node are not starting because resource ordering is enforced.
  • How can I customize the mandatory resource ordering feature in pacemaker cluster so that not all resources are required to be started?
  • How can I enforce ungrouped resources to start first but without the default mandatory option where only one ungrouped resource remain in started state.
