Just an update, I've updated the pcs (to 0.9.27) and included the pcsd daemon 
with the fedora packages.  You can grab the updated packages here:


And you should be able to used the new Clusters from Scratch optimized for the 
pcs CLI here: http://www.clusterlabs.org/doc/

Just a couple things to note (this should be shortly updated in the notes).

To run pcs on Fedora 17/18 you'll need to turn off selinux & disable the 
firewall (or at least allow traffic on port 2224).

To disable SELinux set 'SELINUX=permissive' in /etc/selinux/config and reboot
To disable the firewall run 'systemctl stop iptables.service' (to permanently 
disable run 'systemctl disable iptables.service')

The pcs_passwd command has been removed.  In it's place you can do 
authentication with the hacluster user.  Just set the hacluster user password 
(passwd hacluster) and then use that user and password to authenticate with pcs.

If you have any questions or any issues don't hesitate to contact me, we're 
still working out the bugs in the new pcsd daemon and we appreciate all the 
feedback we can get.
