Yes.

No.  It appears to be created when a service with the Apache resource
is started on a node.

No, I'm developing individual httpd.conf files, but they will all
reside in the same GFS2 filesystem (/datafs).

I tried a `clusvcadm -r -m`  this morning.  And it works.

So it appears that using the drop down menu in Conga to select a node
and relocate the service to that node as part of a restart is not
working.  When I do that, the service just restarts on whatever node
it's already running on (and it's very obvious in the rgmanager log
file).  The drop down menu isn't being honored.

I am using the Red Hat httpd RPM.  But I see your point and it makes sense.

Maybe a little more documentation on the intended use, and how to use,
each resource agent in the Cluster Administration guide would be very
helpful for newbs like myself.
