Not strictly necessary, since rsync is colocated with symlink which is
colocated with filesystem, and ip is also colocated with filesystem.

But it is a good idea to model all logical dependencies, since you
don't know what changes you might make to the configuration in the
future. If you want rsyncd to always be with the floating ip, then by
all means add a colocation constraint.

That is definitely not a properly functioning cluster. Something is
going wrong at some level.

When you say that "pcs resource cleanup" didn't fix the issue, what
happened after that? Did "pcs status" still show an error for the
resource? If so, there was an additional failure.
