You'll need to reboot the system - or at least restart all the cluster services
which probably amnounts to the same thing.

When a cluster is partitioned, the partitions (obviously) don't know what has
been going on in the other partition, so it can't just rejoin the cluster
because the whole lockspace/filesystem state may have completely changed.

When network connectivity is re-established the quorate partition (if there is
one) should fence the inquorate one. If it is an even partition where neither
has quorum then they will just stare sullenly at each other for ever, unfortunately.
