yeah, the GUI is a bit...

I only use the standard resource files in that cluster, only for stonith I
use self written scripts to kill the other nodes via ssh to the iLo board.

I have about 9 clone sets, and the same number of groups, each group
containing 9 or 10 resources.
Maybe I can try changeing the IPaddr script to allow me to give it a list of
IP addresses, and a list of devices. then each group only consists of 2 or
less resources. As far as I can see, that could drop the load from the
server and maybe fix the timing problems.

I think the hint with the timings is good, and I'll first try to change the
script. If that doesn't help, then I'll post it here.
