Don't do that.

:)

They're *supposed* to try to fence each other in this case.  However,
the one with the disconnected network jack will lose - because it should
not be able to talk to DRAC.

You can use qdisk to add any sort of heuristic you want for a node to
determine liveliness fitness.  See the qdisk man page out of the RHEL4
branch.
