The only difference is that in previous installations I configured corosync with multicast and now I have configured with unicast (my current network environment doesn't allow multicast) but I think it's not related with that behaviour

Agreed, I don't think it's multicast vs unicast.

I can't see from this what's going wrong. Possibly node1 is trying to
re-fence node2 when it comes back. Check that the fencing resources are
configured correctly, and check whether node1 sees the first fencing
