Bug Description

Whole cluster goes down if you execute crm resource stop p_zabbix-server. This is because the resource vip__management (ocf::fuel:ns_IPaddr2) will also stop.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Deploy environment using Fuel 6.1 with Zabbix plugin enabled.
2. After deployment execute crm resource stop p_zabbix-server

Current result:
The vip_management resource also becomes stopped. Rendering lots of services unaccessible.

Expected result:
Ability to independently stop zabbix server wtihout influencing other services.

After some more research it looks like this is the line that's causing this behaviour:
cibadmin --query | grep vip_management | grep zabbix
<rsc_colocation id="vip_management-with-zabbix-server" rsc="vip__management" score="INFINITY" with-rsc="p_zabbix-server"/>

The current workaround is to remove that line from the cib with:
cibadmin --delete --xml-text '<rsc_colocation id="vip_management-with-zabbix-server"/>'

Recommended way of achieving this is through Pacemaker resource groups:

Example 6.15. A group resource with the equivalent colocation rules

  <group id="dummy">
    <primitive id="A" .../>
    <primitive id="B" .../>
    <primitive id="C" .../>
    <primitive id="D" .../>

This notation can also be used in this context to tell the cluster that a set of resources must all be located with a common peer, but have no dependencies on each other. In this scenario, unlike the previous on, B would be allowed to remain active even if A or C (or both) were inactive.

This was intentional behavior. Zabbix deployed with zabbix-snmp-plugin required to be run on the same host as mgmt_vip.

Now we can reserve VIP address from plugin. We will create dedicated VIP for snmp-plugin and force zabbix to be runned on the same machine. Or we will use group resource.

We will remove collocation for zabbix+vip_mgmt.

You can still have the requirement for the services to be colocated on the same host. This bug is about the vip_management resource being stopped when zabbix-server is being stopped. You can still have them be colocated on the same host but use a resource group instead of a hard dependency of colocation. (That's how I understood the docs of pacemaker)

The plugin repository has no branches 6.1/7.0/et cetera, moreover, packages that are being built from this repo are not a part of Fuel ISO and official Fuel packages repository. Closing this as Won't Fix.
