Description Jaroslav Kortus 2013-01-21 17:41:09 UTC
Description of problem:
pcs allows you to specify non-existent resource agent.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. pcs resource create dummystateful nonsense op monitor interval="5s"
Actual results:
Full list of resources:

 dummystateful	(ocf::heartbeat:nonsense):	Stopped 

Expected results:
pcs should catch this error while parsing the arguments. As it can already provide the list of resources and providers, it could filter the input against them to see if obvious mistake has not been made.

If error is detected, it should be printed (like "Specified resource is not valid, use pcs resource agents for a full list") and exit code should be non-zero.

Marking with docs_scoped - as this issue will not be documented in the Virtualization Administration Guide for RHEL 6.5

Comment 9 Chris Feist 2013-08-13 21:27:49 UTC
[root@ask-02 ~]# pcs -f temp.xml resource create dummystateful nonsense op monitor interval="5s"
Error: Unable to create resource 'nonsense', it is not installed on this system (use --force to override)
[root@ask-02 ~]# echo $?
