Unhappy iLO fencing with Cluster Suite

I am trying to configure cluster suite to create a fail-over cluster my reverse proxy server (no shared storage). I followed the documentation and was able to get the system to fail-over if the primary server goes down. That was pretty easy. My problem is that if the httpd daemon fails, fail-over does not occur. Maybe I'm confused, but I thought that's what the fencing part is supposed to do. I have configured my server using HP iLO as the fencing, but it doesn't seem to do anything. Can someone point me in the right direction to get the system to fail-over if the httpd daemon fails?

Have you checked that your init script for httpd returns the correct value.
It needs to return 0
Simplest way is just to change the last line from
return $retval
return 0
If not your cluster will not be able to tell when to fail over the httpd service
