[ClusterLabs] two node cluster. each node shows other node offline.

Hello all,

I have two nginx nodes running nginx version: nginx/1.11.10
(nginx-plus-r12-p2), Corosync Cluster Engine, version '2.3.5',
and Pacemaker 1.1.14 on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS.

This cluster is intended to replace our old nginx cluster running on 14.04
and older versions of corosync/pacemaker.

On initial set up of the cluster everything works wonderfully and I can put
a node on standby and failover works as expected. However if I reboot one
of the nodes the cluster gets into a split situation where each node thinks
the other node is offline. I've tried numerous things to correct it but I
cannot get them to both show as online.

crm status from nginx1:

root at prod-nginx1:~# crm status
Online: [ prod-nginx1 ]
OFFLINE: [ prod-nginx2 ]

Full list of resources:

 ClusterIP (ocf::heartbeat:IPaddr2): Started prod-nginx1
 ClusterIPRestricted (ocf::heartbeat:IPaddr2): Started prod-nginx1
 Nginx (ocf::heartbeat:nginx): Started prod-nginx1

and crm status from nginx2:

root at prod-nginx2:~# crm status
Online: [ prod-nginx2 ]
OFFLINE: [ prod-nginx1 ]

Full list of resources:

 ClusterIP (ocf::heartbeat:IPaddr2): Started prod-nginx2
 ClusterIPRestricted (ocf::heartbeat:IPaddr2): Started prod-nginx2
 Nginx (ocf::heartbeat:nginx): Started prod-nginx2

I've tried forcing the nodes back online, restarting both pacemaker and
corosync on both servers, but nothing seems to work. I do not have this
issue with corosync/pacemaker on ubuntu 14.04.

Here is the current corosync.conf which works on ubuntu 14.04
