Not correct... not every service _has_ a resource agent. Mariadb/galera
and rabbitmq do, but all other services are controlled via Pacemaker via
their systemd scripts

So when you tell pacemaker to stop nova-api, it does so via systemd

If something outside of pacemaker knowledge (like user from command
line, or rpm %post or whatever) uses systemd directly to stop nova-api,
pacemaker says "OMG the service died" and tries to recover
