[Pacemaker] no-quorum-policy

Hi all,

I have one confusion .  pacemaker (configuration explained ) document  says
that " if the cluster does not have quorum then the cluster cannot start
resources or fence other nodes."   i understand that when no-quorum-policy
is set to "stop"   then cluster will not be able to start it's existing
resources  and when it is set to  "freeze" cluster will not be able to add
and start new resources. but i dont know when it will not be able to "fence
other nodes" .  i guess it should be when   no-quorum-policy is set to

well if it is like this then in 2 nodes cluster,  when ever split brain
situation will happen then a node will never  be able to reset other node as
without quorum fencing can not happen.  only suicide can happen that means a
node will reset itself in absence of quorum. am i right??

Please let me know your view on this.
