Do you have this in your cluster.conf?

  <cman two_node="1" expected_votes="1">

If not, then the live node will lose quorum when you kill the other node
and it won't do anything until the failed node has rejoined the cluster.

If you already have that in cluster.conf, then is there a manual fencing
message in /var/log/messages on the live node?
