[PVE-User] VMs in cluster not starting

Hi all,

During the last weekend there was a power outage (5 hours) and a 2-node 
Proxmox cluster was down.

When power returned, proxmox nodes were powered on but one of them 
couldn't mount a disk (unrelated issue), so frezeed asking whether to go 
to maintenance mode or not.

The node that booted properly, did not start any VMs. Reported error is:
Task: "Start all VMs and Containers"
Error: Error cluster not ready - no quorum?

So, it is true that there wasn't quorum, as only 1 of 2 nodes were up. 
But all the VMs were on non-shared disks, so I'd expect that this node 
would start his local VMs. Is this behaviour the expected one? (no 
quorum - no VMs started)

There was one shared, NFS storage, just for backups.

Thanks a lot
