The resource agent is ocf:pw:uc -- I assume this is a local
customization of the ocf:pacemaker:Stateful agent?

It looks to me like the /var/run/uc directory is not being created on
the second node. /var/run is a memory filesystem, so it's wiped at
every reboot, and any directories need to be created (as root) before
they are used, every boot.

ocf:pacemaker:Stateful puts its state file directly in /var/run to
avoid needing to create any directories. You can change that by setting
the "state" parameter, but in that case you have to make sure the
directory you specify exists beforehand.
