What IPs do the node names resolve to? I'm assuming bond1, but I would
like you to confirm.

I'm still not sure what you mean by heartbeat. Do you mean the channel
corosync is using?

This tells me both links dropped at the same time. These messages are
coming from below the cluster though.

With both of the bond's NICs down, the bond itself is going to drop.

I don't see any messages about the cluster in here, which I assume you
cropped out. In this case, it doesn't matter as the problem is well
below the cluster, but in general, please provide more data, not less.
You never know what might help. :)

Anyway, you need to sort out what is happening here. Bad drivers? Bad
card (assuming dual-port)? Something is taking the NICs down, as though
they were actually unplugged.

If you can run them through a switch, if might help isolate which node
is causing the problems as then you would only see one node record "NIC
Copper Link is Down" and can then focus on just that node.
