My guess is there is a problem with fencing.  Are you running fence_ilo with an HP blade?   Iirc the iLOs on the blades have a different CLI, I don't think fence_ilo will work with them.  What do you see in the messages files during these events?  If you see failed fence messages you may want to look into using fence_ipmilan:


If you post a snip of your messages file from this event and your cluster.conf I will have a better idea of what is going on.
