Modify gemfiles as described at

You mean you got the error when using RHEL 7.2 pcs rpm and pacemaker 
built from sources while when you used both pcs and pacemaker RHEL 7.2 
rpms there was no error? When and where did you get this error? It might 
be simply the case of trying to access the CIB while pacemaker is still 
starting. Or it might be some incompatibility between old pcs and new 
pacemaker. Hard to say with this little info.

Anyway, I agree with Ken regarding upgrading to 7.4 and use RHEL rpms.
