Why didn't my cluster service fail over to another node after fencing in a RHEL 5 or 6 High Availability cluster with rgmanager?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • A node failed and was fenced, but the other node never took over the service.
  • I'm not seeing my service failover when the owner leaves the cluster


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 or 6 with the High Availability Add On
  • rgmanager
