Well I think that I found the problem: cman startup script. In this line:

     # Check for presence of Domain-0; if it's not there, we can't
     # run xvmd.
     xm list --long 2> /dev/null | grep -q "Domain-0" || return 1

If it is executed from command line any result is returned:

  [root at xenhost xen]# xm list --long 2> /dev/null | grep -q "Domain-0"
  [root at xenhost xen]#

If I put -X under /etc/sysconfig/cman on FENCE_XVMD_OPTS, nothing 
happens. Is this a bug???
