The httpd resource does appear to be running (based on the pcs status output you've shown). Perhaps something stopped the service while Pacemaker was monitoring it, which would throw the error you see above, and trigger a recovery.

If you grep your logs (on the DC: "Current DC: vda-zabserver-b - partition with quorum") for "LogActions", you should see any Start/Stop/Recover/Restart/Leave actions Pacemaker performed on the resources.

If that was the case, you will want to make sure nothing except Pacemaker is managing these clustered services; Pacemaker expects to be the only thing starting and stopping these services.

You can cleanup the error by running the following command:

# pcs resource cleanup httpd

The return code 7, usually means that the service wasn't running when Pacemaker checked its status.

I fixed it by uncommenting status URL in httpd.conf and creating resource this way. Make sure though http://localhost/server-status is accessible before adding resource

pcs resource create httpd apache configfile="/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf" statusurl="http://localhost/server-status" op monitor interval=5s --group zabbix-cluster
