Description Steven J. Levine 2017-07-12 10:15:07 EDT
Cloning this as a doc bug so that we can track the documentation when the feature is implemented.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1470105 +++

Description of problem:
In bz1176018 we added support for pacemaker authkey. The authkey is automatically created and distributed by pcs. However pcs always reads it from and writes it to /etc/pacemaker/authkey. If a custom location for the authkey is specified in /etc/sysconfig/pacemaker, pcs ignores it. This leads to missing authkey from pacemaker point of view.

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

How reproducible:
always, easily

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change authkey path in /etc/sysconfig/pacemaker .
2. Setup a cluster, add remote or guest nodes.
3. Pacemaker authkey is stored at /etc/pacemaker/authkey instead of the location set in step 1, remote and guest nodes don't work.

Actual results:
Custom authkey location is ignored.

Expected results:
Custom authkey location is respected.

Additional info:
Backing up and restoring of cluster configuration needs to be fixed as well.

The feature this documents was moved to 7.6 so I'm moving this BZ as well (and removing it from the docs RPL)
