May be because my knowledge of resource agents is not enough. Having my
processes as resources automatically handled by pace maker will workout. I
will need to find out more on making my services (written in CPP) resource
agents for pacemaker. Any pointers on this ?
With this identifying current DC is not problem anymore. You are right, I
was trying to use if for something else which it is not.
