I have a RHCS with two nodes and manual fencing. when I restart Node 1 (the primary) it migrates both services to Node 2 automatically. but when I shutdown Node 1, it doesnt happen and I need to use fence_ack_manual to fence Node 1 and then services are migrated to Node 2.

why does this happens?

Cluster fencing is importan component, so if the fencing request doesn't goes, the cluster stop every operation until the cluster is in clean stay, manual fencing is fake fencing
