40 order constraints? A big cluster.

Yes, the GUI should work. You can also use the crm shell to edit
constraints. It should look sth like this:
order o inf: lvm ( rsc1 rsc2 ... rscn )
providing that rsc1 ... rscn don't depend on each other.

Should be. But the number of resources you want to put into the
set is unusually large. Try this first on a test cluster. It is
also possible to use several constraints:
order o1 inf: lvm ( rsc1 rsc2 ... rscm )
order o2 inf: lvm ( rscm+1 rscm+2 ... )

Happy NY to you too.
