Looking at your config, unless I'm missing something I don't see ordering constraints between dlm and clvmd.  You need the "start dlm-clone then start clvmd-clone" order constraint as well as a "colocate clvmd-clone with dlm-clone" colocation constraint.  Otherwise, you are going to run into random start and stop errors.

Even after you do this, you may still have problems. The lsb:clvmd init script performs some unnecessary blocking operations during the 'status' operation. I have a patch attached to this issue, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1040670 , that should resolve that issue if you hit it.

Hope that helps :)
