Question:
When the primary node goes down will another node in the site take over automatically?
Answer:
When using multisite clustering, with multiple nodes in the primary site, another node will assume the role of the primary when the primary node fails.  If all the nodes in the primary site fail, or the site itself, another site must be promoted to primary.  This is not an automatic process.  The primary node in this site will assume the role of the primary.  For more information please refer to the PAM wiki.  Here is the link to the relevant page in the PAM 3.2 Wiki:
