Right, the pacemaker version on 13.1 already supports pacemaker-remote.

Right. Do they show up in crm_mon?

With pcs and crmsh, users now have the choice of two shells - and not
both of them always support all features of pacemaker in exactly the
same way, or at all. (There's some constraint parts that crmsh still
handles better, and the history explorer, for example.)

We already provide pacemaker-remote as part of the main distribution
because it can be used independently from crmsh.

Since RHT is heavily focused on pcs and pacemaker-remote, it makes sense
that that combo is the first to support both. We were waiting for it to
be fully stable a little bit longer ;-) But it's also on the roadmap for
crmsh. Kristoffer was busy with other features recently though.

You can try upgrading to the packages from
networking:ha-clustering:Factory from the openSUSE Build Service, which
are more uptodate than 13.1 already.

We also have a very quiet opensuse-ha mailing list for issues specific
to packaging on openSUSE: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-ha/ feel
free to raise this over there too.
