I use rhcs 4  on rhel 4.0
I have setup 2 node cluster use manual fenceing
node name = cluster1 , cluster2
It failover completely if i stop service for each nod
But when i try to disconnected cable from cluster1 both node try to fence 
each other and
have following log:

May 11 15:50:26 cluster2 fenced[2183]: fencing node "cluster1"
May 11 15:50:26 cluster2 fenced[2183]: agent "fence_manual" reports: failed: 
fence_manual no node name
May 11 15:50:26 cluster2 fenced[2183]: fence "cluster1" failed

>From system-config-cluster menu it have no parameter to specify  node name 
for manual fencing but in command line can.
so I try to run  "fence_ack_manual -n node1" but it's out put show that  
have no file "/tmp/fence_manual.fifo"
after i create "/tmp/fence_manual.fifo" manually  and re run 
fence_ack_manual it show "done"

but in the logfile still the same as if no thing happen and  service still 
not failover
