Let me explain what I understood from your question:

1.- Both nodes are shutdown
2.- You start node A
3.- While node A is booting, at some moment it starts a fence operation
over node B
4.- As a result of this fencing operation, node B starts to boot too.

As i see this a perfectly normal situation if you have set the cluster
services to autostart at system boot time. As node A boots and finds no 
communications with node B it will fence node B. The fencing operation will
restart via iLO your server, so if the server is powered off it will get
powered on as the result of the restart.

You can see the log of your iLO messages off "Power on/off signal sent
to host server by: XXXX" to check this.

My personal recommendation is to avoid using automated boot of cluster services at system boot time. 
If a cluster node fails let an administrator check the node prior to adding it to the cluster again.

I hope this helps. Cheers,

Rafael
