Proposed Pacemaker Tool Changes

These are proposed Pacemaker changes that are significant enough for a major or minor version bump (2.x or 3.0). They are subject to change and discussion, and could be rejected.

These are proposed changes to the interface or behavior of Pacemaker command-line tools.

All tools

  • In many cases, pacemaker command-line tools would ignore extra arguments or illegal option combinations. Now, they will print an error message and exit with an error status.
  • Deprecated options to various tools may be removed, including crm_resource --host-uname/-H and cibadmin --host/-h


  • The --as-html, --as-xml, --web-cgi, and --disable-ncurses options are no longer documented and will now print a deprecation warning (with the equivalent current syntax).
