Funny, it works here. I guess that ptest -L -s should do in any

Nope, it doesn't, but that'll certainly make your configuration
rather big. Perhaps you can try with the asymmetric cluster (set
symmetric-cluster to false). In that case you should get by with
only the first two location constraints. But note that you will
need location constraints for all rsc-node combinations when you
want to allow the resource to run.
