I need to know which machine is the current active node in an active(1)-passive(n) cluster.

Reading the docs I could come up with

cl_status rscstatus <node name>

which returns various values that are not that precise (all, transition, foreign, none, local). Is there any definite way to know which one is the master node?

Heartbeat 1 or heartbeat 2? – womble Jul 23 '12 at 11:05
Heartbeat 3.0.5 – Guillaume Bodi Jul 23 '12 at 13:38
The question is - do you use haresources (v1 - ASCII) or v2-XML for your configuration? – Nils Oct 11 '12 at 21:14
That would be haresources v1 – Guillaume Bodi Oct 11 '12 at 23:26
