I imagine that some new mechanism would be needed to have non-persistent or
self-resetting attribute changes in the CIB:
For example if you do a "resource restart" and the node where the command runs
is fenced during the "stop" phase, the resource remains stopped until started
manually. This is because the "restart" is implemented as sequential non-atomic
"stop, then start".
Similar for a "cluster stop": There is a attribute "stop-all-resources"
(AFAIR). A "cluster stop" could temporarily set this to get all resources on
all nodes stopped. Then the pacemakers and corosyncs and sbds should stop. On
restart each node should start up normally...
BTW: HP-UX ServiceGuard had not only a command to stop the cluster, but also
one to start the cluster: I imagine that it could play nice with pacemaker as
well: The command would first start all the SBDs, corosyncs, and pacemakers,
and once the DC is selected, resources would start without needless shuffling
(migration) resources between nodes joining the cluster.
