Do I decipher the above correctly that the cluster is scheduled for
shutdown (fully independently node by node or through a single trigger
with a high level management tool?) and starts proceeding in serial
manner, shutting 2nd node ~ original DC first?

Sadly, it looks like details of why this happened would only be
retained when debugging/tracing verbosity of the log messages
was enabled, which likely wasn't the case.

Anyway, perhaps providing a wider context of the log messages
from this first node might shed some light into this.

This might have serious consequences in some scenarios, perhaps
unless some watchdog-based solution (SBD?) was used as a fencing
of choice since it would not get defused just as the resource
wasn't stopped, I think...

No idea at this point.
