The cluster is already configured. But a single node can mount/unmount
the fs as it wants.
I know, xfstests is not a perfect test case for ocfs2 but it allowed me
to trigger issues...
These issues can also be triggered without xfstests. But in my case I
found them using xfstests.

It refuses to check the fs and exists with an error code != 0.
From the manpage:
-F By default fsck.ocfs2 will check with the cluster
services to ensure that the volume is not in-use (mounted) on any node
in the cluster before proceeding. -F skips this check and should only
be used when it can be guaranteed that the volume is not mounted on any
node in the cluster. WARNING: If the cluster check is disabled and the
volume is mounted on one or more nodes, file system corruption is very
likely. If unsure, do not use this option.
