[Linux-cluster] cluster not fencing after filesystem failure

Actually it does look like the failed node was fenced by the other node:

Apr 25 02:51:46 fenced fencing node sdo-dds-nfsnode2.dds.sdo
Apr 25 02:52:39 fenced fence sdo-dds-nfsnode2.dds.sdo success

However, even after fencing, the working node (sdo-dds-nfsnode1) did not
resume the HA_nfs service.  The service was in a failed state:
