[Pacemaker] Running pacemaker as non-root user

Hi all,

I was trying to find out whether it is possible to START/STOP pacemaker, and also run PCS commands as non-root user (in my case it is 'admin' user).
I did add the user('admin') to haclient group, but it is of no help. I get the following error on start :

[admin at vm4 ~]$ service pacemaker start
Only root can execute /etc/init.d/cman script
Starting Pacemaker Cluster Manager: touch: cannot touch `/var/lock/subsys/pacemaker': Permission denied
/etc/init.d/pacemaker: line 94: /var/run/pacemakerd.pid: Permission denied
                                                           [  OK  ]
[admin at vm4 ~]$ id admin
uid=500(admin) gid=500(admin) groups=500(admin),10(wheel),496(haclient)

Can anybody help me here or point me to any resource to resolve this.. ?

Thanks in advance.. :)
