I take a look over it... Is not ok at all ... It require rsh server to be 
installed on our nodes (is anybody using rsh...?) or require ssh v1 which is 
also disabled by default on all our nodes for security reasons... Finally, 
will do not do more then one line in a script which i coded in 5 seconds:

Stop service:
for i in `seq 1 $n`
ssh -l root node$i /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop && logout;

Start service:
for i in `seq 1 $n`
ssh -l root node$i /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start && logout;

I don't think that this is a modern way and elevated method to be used in 

If that is all it can redhat cluster v2, i'm afraid is very bad news....
