Not with the "move" command, which looks for a particular resource to
stop then start. But all "move" does is create a location constraint
for the resource, and you can do that with a tag.
Unfortunately the pcs constraint command currently checks that the
given name exists as a resource, so you can't create the constraint
that way. But you could use pcs cluster edit or cibadmin to add the XML
directly. Instead of:
pcs resource move rsc1
or equivalently with the pacemaker tools
crm_resource --move -r rsc1
you can add this XML to the configuration:
