please find a good introduction here:


Once you read that you have to decide what platform you are working on (RHEL, 
I see) and what command line tool you want to use (crmsh or pcs). Since I do 
not want to start a flame war, I will not comment on the preferences of the 
CLIs. You could call me.

Then you read the in depth cluster doc for the pacemaker / corosync version 
and CLI you chose. The doc is here:


And, of course, there is a very good German book by O'Reilly.
