[Linux-cluster] Problems with IP addresses

I have a 4 node cluster, with two nic interfaces, one private (used for
cluster purposes) and one public (used for external services)

I have configure a service with two resources, an ip address and a script.

My problem is that when the external NIC  is Down, the  cluster reports
the following error:

Feb 18 10:08:07 node4_pub clurgmgrd[4144]: <notice> status on ip
"" returned 2 (invalid argument(s))
Feb 18 10:08:07 node4_pub clurgmgrd[4144]: <notice> Stopping service

And the service is permanently stopped even the the external NIC comes
up again.

I've tried two different configurations for the service:

  <service autostart="1" domain="Node4" name="test1" recovery="restart">
                        <ip ref=""/>
                        <script ref="sTest1"/>

  <service autostart="1" domain="Node4" name="test1" recovery="restart">
                        <ip ref="">
                                <script ref="sTest1"/>

Both configurations exhibit the same behavior.
Any ideas on how to solve this?

Thanks in advance.
