I deleted the one i mentioned, but now i have two again. I didn't create them.
Does the crm create constraints itself ?

location cli-ban-prim_vm_mausdb-on-ha-idg-2 prim_vm_mausdb role=Started -inf: ha-idg-2
location cli-prefer-prim_vm_mausdb prim_vm_mausdb role=Started inf: ha-idg-2

One location constraint inf, one -inf for the same resource on the same node.
Isn't that senseless ?

"crm resorce scores" show -inf for that resource on that node:
native_color: prim_vm_mausdb allocation score on ha-idg-1: 100
native_color: prim_vm_mausdb allocation score on ha-idg-2: -INFINITY

Is -inf stronger ?
Is it true that only the values for "native_color" are notable ?

A principle question: When i have trouble to start/stop/migrate resources,
is it senseful to do a "crm resource cleanup" before trying again ?
(Beneath finding the reason for the trouble).

Sorry for asking basic stuff. I read a lot before, but in practise it's total different.
Although i just have a vm as a resource, and i'm only testing, i'm sometimes astonished about the 
complexity of a simple two node cluster: scores, failcounts, constraints, default values for a lot of variables ...
you have to keep an eye on a lot of stuff.
