You haven't given us enough information.
You haven't even said whether the file system is GFS, GFS2, EXT3,
XFS, etc., or NFS over one of the above.  In general, directories
should not just disappear.  Perhaps one of your nodes has the
file system mounted and the other does not, so when failover
occurs, it just looks like the directories are gone?
