I considered this option, but that puts us into a situation where if
node X and Y fail, then resources from them won't be started up on Z.
I would like to (if possible) avoid that -- I want one node to be able
to take on everything.

I realize this may be a pipe dream.  It is impossible to determine,
from the point of view of Z, whether Z has failed or whether both X
and Y have failed.  This is one reason for me to turn off STONITH --
if Z has failed, at least it won't go murder X and Y.

Uncertain.  I'll see if I can reproduce and try to record this data.

Thanks for the response.
