Now when more resources want to run on a node (C) that the node can deal with, the higher priority resources will succeed. Drawback: Stopping a resource can cause some resource shuffling between nodes. We run a similar configuration with SLES11 for a few years now. If resources are becoming tight, test and development resources have to give way for production resources...

Utilization attributes are a good idea, if overloading the machine is
your concern.

If the DBs simply can't run together, add a colocation constraint with a
negative score.

In either case, you can use the "priority" meta-attribute to say which
one is preferred when both can't run:
