Fixed In Version: pcs-0.9.156-1.el7
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: User specifies both the --all flag and a list of nodes when running "pcs cluster start", "pcs cluster stop", "pcs cluster enable" or "pcs cluster disable". Consequence: Pcs ignores the node list and uses the --all flag. Fix: Check if both a list of nodes and the --all flag are specified. Result: Pcs exits with an error explaining only one of the --all flag and a list of nodes can be specified.

Description Jan Pokorný [poki] 2016-05-24 19:02:21 UTC
Looking merely at the provided syntax, it's not apparent there
is an internal mutual exclusion of "--all" and a list of nodes
(not reading further explanation, one might think that "--all"
is just a command modifier, i.e., do the start/stop in a coordinated
manner between the nodes being started/stopped, while this is true
modulo all known nodes are involved).

What about:

> start [[--all] | [node] [...]] [--wait[=<n>]]

plus perhaps a check that nodes are not being passed when --all is

After Fix:

[vm-rhel72-1 ~] $ rpm -q pcs

[vm-rhel72-1 ~] $ pcs cluster stop vm-rhel72-1 vm-rhel72-3 --all
Error: Cannot specify both --all and a list of nodes.
