[ClusterLabs] Can't do anything right; how do I start over?

Heh.  Well, the comment in corosync.conf makes sense to me now.
Thanks, I've fixed that.

Here's my corosync.conf
totem {
    version: 2

    crypto_cipher: none
    crypto_hash: none

    interface {
        ringnumber: 0
        mcastport: 5405
        ttl: 1
    cluster_name: pecan

logging {
    fileline: off
    to_stderr: no
    to_logfile: yes
    logfile: /var/log/cluster/corosync.log
    to_syslog: yes
    debug: off
    timestamp: on
    logger_subsys {
        subsys: QUORUM
        debug: off

quorum {
    provider: corosync_votequorum
    two_node: 1
    wait_for_all: 1
service {
    name: pacemaker
    ver: 1
nodelist {
  node {
        ring0_addr: smoking
        nodeid: 1
  node {
        ring0_addr: mars
        nodeid: 2

And a few things are behaving better than they did before.

At the moment my goal is to set up a partition as drbd.
In the interest of bandwidth I will show the commands that
I use and the result I finally get.

pcs cluster auth smoking mars
pcs property set stonith-enabled=true
stonith_admin --metadata --agent fence_pcmk
cibadmin -C -o resources --xml-file stonith.xml
pcs resource create floating_ip IPaddr2 ip= cidr_netmask=32
pcs resource  defaults resource-stickiness=100

And at this point, all appears well.  My pcs status output looks like
I think it should.

Now, of course, I admit that setting up the floating_ip is
not relevant to my goal of a drbd backed filesystem, but I've been
doing it as a sanity check.

On to drbd
modprobe drbd
systemctl start drbd.service
[root at smoking cluster]#  cat /proc/drbd
version: 8.4.8-1 (api:1/proto:86-101)
GIT-hash: 22b4c802192646e433d3f7399d578ec7fecc6272 build by mockbuild@,

Again, this is stuff that hung around from the previous incarnation.
But it looks okay to me.  I'm planning to use the '1' device.
The above is run on the secondary machine, so Secondary/Primary is
correct.  And UpToDate/UpToDate looks right to me.

Now it goes south.  The mkfs.xfs appears to work, but that's not
relevant anyway, right?
pcs  resource create BravoSpace \

I've looked in /var/log/cluster/corosync.log and it doesn't seem
happy but I don't know what I'm looking at.  On the primary
machine it's 1800+ lines on the secondary it's 600+ lines.
There are 337 lines just with BravoSpace in them.
One of them says
drbd(BravoSpace)[3295]:    2016/10/15_01:18:56 ERROR: meta parameter
 expected clone-max -le 2, but found unset.
But I tried adding clone-max=2 but the command barfed-- that's not a legal

So, what's wrong?  (I'm a newbie, of course.)

I did a pcs resource cleanup .  That shut down fencing and the IP.
I tried pcs cluster start to get them back, no help.
I did pcs cluster standby smoking, and then unstandby smoking.
The ip started, but fencing has failed on BOTH machines.
I can't see what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks.  I realize I'm consuming your time on the cheap.
