If you shut down a node then it leaves the cluster cleanly.  If you pull the
network on a node then the other node tries to fence it.  Nothing will
happen with the services the missing node "owned" until that node is
successfully fenced.

Node2: tail –f /var/log/message

This is where your issues is.  Because fencing failed the other node will
not take over any of the failed services.
