I don't see what was the reason cluster wants to shoot wc02.
The logs should say.

Right. In general, if the environment changes in such a way that
some resources may fail, then one should put those resources into
unmanaged mode beforehand. Actually, it'd be best to first stop
those resources, do whatever changes you have to do, reconfigure
resources appropriately, then start them again.

It depends, I guess. You can take a look at the pengine

Hard to say without logs, but probably not.

Yes, insofar that if a node needs to be fenced, then it (the
cluster) won't budge until that's done. Whether it is sensible to
fence that node is another matter.

If you find this behaviour unexpected, then please open a
bugzilla and attach a full report (hb_report).
