10.3. Multi-state - Resources That Have Multiple Modes

Multi-state resources are a specialization of clone resources; please ensure you understand Section 10.2, “Clones - Resources That Get Active on Multiple Hosts” before continuing!
Multi-state resources allow the instances to be in one of two operating modes (called roles). The roles are called master and slave, but can mean whatever you wish them to mean. The only limitation is that when an instance is started, it must come up in the slave role.
