crm_resource --restart fails to restart a clone instance with a "resource not running on node" error in a Pacemaker cluster

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • The crm_resource --restart --resource <rsc> --node <node> command successfully restarts an instance of a clone resource on one node. But for the other nodes, the command fails with the error shown below.
# crm_resource --restart --resource stateful --node node2
stateful is not running on node2 and so cannot be restarted
