Thanks for the reply, Ken

Seems to me that that the constraints for a cloned resources act a a bit 

Here is my config:

primitive p_AA_Filesystem_CDrive1 ocf:heartbeat:Filesystem \
         params device="/dev/CSD_CDrive1/AA_CDrive1" 
directory="/volumes/AA_CDrive1" fstype="ocfs2" options="rw,noatime"
primitive VM_VM1 ocf:heartbeat:VirtualDomain \
         params config="/volumes/AA_CDrive1/VM_VM1/VM1.xml" 
hypervisor="qemu:///system" migration_transport="tcp" \
         meta allow-migrate="true" target-role="Started"
clone AA_Filesystem_CDrive1 p_AA_Filesystem_CDrive1 \
         meta interleave="true" resource-stickiness="0" 
order VM_VM1_after_AA_Filesystem_CDrive1 inf: AA_Filesystem_CDrive1 VM_VM1

Every time when a node comes back from standby, the VM tries to live 
migrate to it long before the filesystem is up.
