Apologies for I was not clear enough while wording my question, I see
that now. When I said - make cluster deal with failed resources - I
meant a resource which failed in the (whole) cluster, failed on every node.

If that happens I see that only my (user manual) intervention can make
cluster peep at the resource again and I wonder if this is me unaware
that there are ways it can be done, that cluster will not need me and by
itself would do something, will not give up.

My case is: a systemd resource which whether successful or not is
determined by a mechanism outside of the cluster, it can only
successfully start on one single node. When that node reboots then
cluster fails this resource, when that node rebooted and is up again the
failed resource remains in failed state.

Hopefully I manged to make it bit clearer this time.

Many thanks, L.
