You can also check if you see any /var/lib/pacemaker entry in the
output of "rpm -qV pacemaker".  Note that while pacemaker creates
directories like /var/lib/pacemaker/cib with proper permissions and
ownership (early enough) on startup if they don't exist yet, it won't
touch these properties on subsequents starts if the dirs are present.
