For getting started, just put it in the /var/lib/heartbeat/crm
directory. It is machine generated - once you start things up. So,
shut things down, get rid of all copies, replace one of them with yours,
and away you go.
From then on, you should use the cibadmin tool to modify it - or you
have to shut the whole cluster down.
ResourceManager is for R1-style-clusters only.
