This has been my experience as well. In a (still running) circa 2002
Sistina GFS FC fenced cluster we're running (but moving off of),
invariably after one node hangs, it's IO fenced, and I have to
power-cycle it, and then typically one or two days later the whole
cluster becomes unstable, and I have to reboot both nodes to clean
things up. After that, typical uptime has been 100 - 150 days.
