Hi marx,

Many thanks for your reply. This is not working for me. let simplify with 2 
nodes. I created a service and a resource, as you suggest:

[snip from cluster.conf]
<service autostart="1" exclusive="0" name="httpd_service">
<script ref="httpd_script"/>

<script file="/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd" name="httpd_script"/>
[end snip]

Now, supposing that httpd_service is running on one node, clusvcadm -d 
httpd_service will disable service and stop httpd on that node, but clusvcadm 
-e httpd_service will enable service on the node where is issued command and 
will not start service also on the second node...so, as i said, is a failover 
configuration. I want to be able to controll httpd in parallel on all nodes! 
So, what is missing from my above cluster.conf setup?
