1. Do I understand it correctly that scenario will be when system
gracefully reboots (pacemaker service is stopped by system shutting
down) and also in case that users for example manually stop cluster but
doesn't reboot the node - something like `pcs cluster stop`?

2. I'm interested how the situation will look like in the 'crm_mon'
output or in 'crm_simulate'. Will there be some indication why the
resources are not moving like 'blocked-shutdown-lock' or they will just
appear as not moving (Stopped)?
Will this look differently from situation where for example the resource
is just not allowed by constraint to run on other nodes?
Thanks for heads up
