I agree with Gerry, why would you disallow automatic failover, that is 
the complete opposite idea to having a cluster.

In any case, I think you could put in some rule constraint tying the 
resources to run in only one node with a value of infinity. If you 
wanted to move the resource, you would have to modify the rule every 
time or remove it.

You can also go to the node where you do not want the resources to move 
automatically and type:

resource move resource_name
resource migrate resource_name

If you do that, then the resource will not run on that node anymore 
unless you type

resource unmove
resource unmigrate

Is it possible that what you really want is to disable auto fail back?
