You read the notes here about startup/shutdown?
http://sources.redhat.com/cluster/doc/usage.txt

To shutdown, you umount all fs's on all nodes, fence_tool leave on
all nodes, then leave the cluster on all.  To leave the cluster without
quorum getting in the way use 'cman_tool leave remove'.

To start up, have all nodes join the cluster with cman_tool join,
then have all nodes join the fence domain with fence_tool join,
then start other things.
