Hi Ken,

thanks for your explanation. 
Now i try to resume if i understood everything correctly:
I started the shutdown of several VirtualDomains with "crm resource vm_xxxxxxx stop".
Not concurrently, one by one with some delay of about 30 sec.
But there was already one VirtualDomain shutting down before.
Cluster said this transition is aborted, but in real it couldn't be aborted. How to abort a running shutdown ?
So we had to wait for the shutdown of that domain.
It has been switched off by libvirt with "virsh destroy" after 10 minutes.
After that the shutdown of the other domains was initiated, and the domains shutdown cleanly.

So, to conclude:
I forgot that i had already one domain in shutdown. I should have waited for this to finish before starting the stop of the other resources.
Cluster tried to "abort" the shutdown, but shutdown can't be aborted.
And i had bad luck that the shutdown of this domain took so long.

Correct ?
