The non-identical hardware means that to move a VM to this third node it it must be stopped then started, a migration will not work.

create an asymmetrical cluster.
add a node property, e.g.

 > node xxx attributes service="web"

create corresponding location rules, e.g.

> location loc-web-fs-www web-fs-www \
>         rule $id="loc-web-webfs-www-rule" 100: service eq web
