Yes waited more then 20-30 seconds (around 2,3 minutes). Didn;t
reboot. But as I said when I pushed the cable back to network port
then it reboots.

Each of my nodes have one network interface card. So my heartbeat and
data cable is same and only one  if I understand you correctly.

Here I am using 4 nodes.

Node 1) That runs luci
Node 2) This is my iscsi shared storage where my virutal machine(s) resides
Node 3) First node in my two node cluster
Node 4) Second node in my two node cluster

All of them are connected simply to an unmanaged 16 port switch.
