I've not read this carefully (at work, sorry), but if I grasped your

For services you want to run on all servers;
- Defined a unique failoverdomain containing each node to run the
parallel services.
- Create the a service multiple times, each using the failoverdomain
containing the single target node.

For services to run on one node, but move on failure, create another
failover domain (ordered, if you want to set preferences) with the
candidate nodes as members. Then create a service and assign it to this

To provide your cluster.conf (or as much as you've crafted so far).
