I really think this "No local heartbeat. Forcing restart" is just ridiculous.
Either the system is dead and then it also can't restart itself or the the
system is in operating state, but then it also doesn't need to reset itself.
So far I haven't seen this issue here with heartbeat2, but in my former group
we had to set heartbeat1 timeouts to 4 min (!) due to the useless
self-resetting. The system was working perfectly, local shell and other
daemons were working without a problem, only heartbeat thought it had to shut
Usually this happend after a reboot of the other failover system when it did
drbd resyncing, but as I said, this was only an issue with heartbeat.
