Are the nodes running slightly different versions of the cluster software?
They must all be running the same version -- there was a change to the
cman message formats shortly before 1.00.00 was released.

not use it.  You only need to run fence_ack_manual when instructed to do
so by a message in /var/log/messages on some node.
