I cant' check it now but i think filesystem resources have a "monitor"
or "status" method, in which they try accessing the filesystem and would
return error code if they can't access the filesystems.

So, if your secondary link fails and it is used to access your iSCSI NAS
and you have filesystems mounted from that NAS you should be able to
detect it and the cluster should fail the service. I imagine the problem
here is the Xen Service, in which (correct me if i'm wrong) you do not
use any kind of filesystem (you use a RAW device).

I'm very interested in this situation because i think in a short time i
would be deploying a cluster in a similar situation, but without Xen so
i hope i will get the benefits of this "monitor" method (if it exists
and works). Please, keep me in touch.
