Hi Pat,

What pcs version do you use? Since version pcs-0.9.155, pcs should be 
able to see and allow to configure any stonith agent that pacemaker can 
see (as long as the agent in question provides valid meta-data). That 
includes cluster-glue agents as well.

If you have older pcs and cannot upgrade it, you may try specifying 
--force when creating the stonith device with pcs. For a bit more 
details about that take a look at

Is this command from pacemaker? Pcs uses the following pacemaker command 
for listing available stonith devices: 'crm_resource --list-agents 
stonith'. Does this list your agent?
