So you expect to mount the /dev/sdj1 on both nodes simultanously, but you only see that it gets mounted, if you failover the service?
If so, thats normal behaviour. The device is formatted with ext3, which may not be mounted on both nodes. In your case the ext3 filesystem failovers with the service.
You use a shared storage device, you say. That's the first step. The next step involves formatting the device with a clustered filesystem. In this case you would use Red Hat's Global Filesystem. Then you may mount the filesystem simultanously on both nodes manual or via /etc/fstab.
