It depends on the fence agent and/or what is configured in your
cluster.conf, but in most cases it should be reboot (in most cases
performed as off then on)
In this case (drbd is using cluster fencing) we are back to cluster.conf,
but you said cluster failed to fence the remote, so drbd would remain
blocking IO to the device and the cluster remains in inquorate state - no
services running
When the connection comes back there are several possible reasons
(split-brain is detected, waiting or a subsequent fence attempt is made)
both servers to try to fence each other at the same time where you end with
both servers down.
