Description of problem:

I set a (Xen) vm service to have <vm ... recovery="restart" max_restarts="2" restart_expire_time="600" />, which is part of a two-node ordered failover domain. When I repeatedly crash the guest using 'echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger', the VM is restarted reliably, but always on the node it was last running on.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a two-node cluster with a vm service in an ordered failover domain.
2. Crash the VM sufficient times to exceed the maximum restart counting within the restart recovery time.
3. VM will not migrate.
Actual results:

VM always restarts, doesn't relocate.

Expected results:

To relocate when limits are exceeded.

Additional info:

Attached very slightly modified cluster.conf.
