[Pacemaker] Question about cluster start-up in a 2 node cluster with a node offline.

Maybe someone can help me understand this behavior.  I have a two node 
cluster built using the "Cluster from Scratch" document.  I am testing 
various behaviors, one of which is to bring up the cluster services on 
one node while it's partner node is offline.

What I am seeing is this:

I start up Corosync and pacemaker one the first node.  The system waits 
dc-deadtime (correct?) and then successfully fences the other node.  At 
this point I would assume that it would bring up the resources, but what 
I find is that the system waits until the first cluster-recheck-interval 
(15min) pops and then starts the resources.

Is this correct behavior? And if so, can I adjust the 
cluster-recheck-interval so my services come online quicker?

Thank you,
