You need the "start dlm-clone then start clvmd-clone" order constraint as well as a "colocate clvmd-clone with dlm-clone" colocation constraint.  Otherwise, you are going to run into random start and stop errors.

I think you nailed it. I deleted the old clvmd resource and recreated it 

pcs cluster cib clvmd_cfg
pcs -f clvmd_cfg resource create clvmd lsb:clvmd params 
daemon_timeout=30s op monitor interval=60s
pcs -f clvmd_cfg resource clone clvmd clone-max=2 clone-node-max=1
pcs -f clvmd_cfg constraint colocation add dlm-clone clvmd-clone INFINITY
pcs -f clvmd_cfg constraint order start dlm then start clvmd-clone
pcs cluster cib-push clvmd_cfg

So far, I've been able to start and stop the clvmd resource reliably!

And so the learning continues... :)
