I reported it to this list - without any reply. Then also filled a bug report:


Also without a reply so far. 

I looked into lrmd code and it seems to only know what it passed as xml to it, 
so unlikely to be a cluster-glue issue. Now it would be much easier to debug, 
if lrmd would know about all resources and would know about required 
parameters. It then could fail immediately without calling the RA. But that is 
design problem.

IMHO, the issue was introced in pacemaker between 1.0.7 and 1.0.9, but I do 
not the time to track it further down. For now we simply continue to use 1.0.7 
(as I reported to the list before, 1.0.8 randomly fails to start resources, as 
we typically have above 30, 60 or even 120 resources, we run then run into 
random issues all the time...).
