if both nodes are up then the stonithd is supposed to relay the
request to the other node - so even in your configuration, spock can
ask for itself to be shot.
if spock is all alone - then you are correct - there is no-one to shoot it.
> So I wondered if such a clone configuration would work with my wti_nps stonith devices. I think it cannot work because the wti's allow only one simultaneously telnet connection. If a second connection is established, it returns immediately with an error. So running more than one instances of the stonith resources may not work because if the nodes try to perform a operation a the same time it fails on one node.
i cant really comment on this - i dont know how the plugins work

Any node with a score less than 0 wont be able to run the resource.
We use -INFINITY so that it is impossible for the node to end up with
a positive score.
So I dont think it will have any effect here.

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at here... for which resources
are you doing this?
