[ClusterLabs] Resources restart when a node joins in

Hi, Citron.

Based on your description, it sounds like some resources **might** be
moving from node 1 to node 2, failing on node 2, and then moving back to
node 1. If that's what's happening (and even if it's not), then it's
probably smart to set some resource stickiness as a resource default. The
below command sets a resource stickiness score of 1.

    # pcs resource defaults resource-stickiness=1

Also note that the "default-resource-stickiness" cluster property is
deprecated and should not be used.

Finally, an explicit default resource stickiness score of 0 can interfere
with the placement of cloned resource instances. If you don't want any
stickiness, then it's better to leave stickiness unset. That way,
primitives will have a stickiness of 0, but clone instances will have a
stickiness of 1.

If adding stickiness does not resolve the issue, can you share your cluster
configuration and some logs that show the issue happening? Off the top of
my head I'm not sure why resources would start and stop on node 2 without
moving away from node1, unless they're clone instances that are starting
and then failing a monitor operation on node 2.
