[Linux-cluster] fence_apc_snmp woes

I have a 2 node cluster on debian. Below is my cluster.conf. If I down node1's nic 
node2 sees and tries to fence

Aug 24 10:57:38 oc-index4 fenced[7599]: oc-index3 not a cluster member after 0 sec post_fail_delay
Aug 24 10:57:38 oc-index4 fenced[7599]: fencing node "oc-index3"
Aug 24 10:57:38 oc-index4 fence_manual: Node needs to be reset before recovery can procede.  Waiting for to rejoin the cluster or for manual acknowledgement that it has been reset (i.e. fence_ack_manual -n
Aug 24 10:59:34 oc-index4 fenced[7599]: fence "oc-index3" success

It states that it's fencing, but never does, and if I do a fence_ack_manual, then fence_apc_snmp gets run and the node1 gets powered down.

what am I missing?
