By back rev’ing the kernel to 3.0.58, the system starts up again with no problems, ocfs2 mounts coming up correctly
Version 3.0.74 was not tested due to the need to get a live system back on line. No other patches had to be downgraded on the 5th server. Just the kernel-xen and the kernel-xen-base
This kernel version has been marked protected on our SLES cluster servers until a resolution is found.
