6.2.2. Asymmetrical "Opt-In" Clusters

To create an opt-in cluster, start by preventing resources from running anywhere by default:
# crm_attribute --name symmetric-cluster --update false
Then start enabling nodes. The following fragment says that the web server prefers sles-1, the database prefers sles-2 and both can fail over to sles-3 if their most preferred node fails.

Example 6.1. Opt-in location constraints for two resources

    <rsc_location id="loc-1" rsc="Webserver" node="sles-1" score="200"/>
    <rsc_location id="loc-2" rsc="Webserver" node="sles-3" score="0"/>
    <rsc_location id="loc-3" rsc="Database" node="sles-2" score="200"/>
    <rsc_location id="loc-4" rsc="Database" node="sles-3" score="0"/>
