The easiest way is to configure "autojoin any" in your ha.cf file,
which is safe if you use sha1 or md5 keys to authenticate in your
authkeys file. This allows every new
node which knows the key to join the cluster whithout the need for an
explicit "node" directive.

Yes, this method worked for me. Set all resourses to unmanaged and
make your changes, reenable it afterwards ... but first of all test
your updates on a test system ;-)
