To get around the ARP issue, I assigned the VIP to the localhost adaptor (lo:0). In the past this has not been a problem, but for some reason the active director in this pair won't assign the VIP from lo:0 to eth0:0 on first boot until I kick the heartbeat service several times.

Is there anything interesting in the heartbeat logs?
If you run the IPaddr or IPaddr2 resource by hand do you get any luck?
They are shell scripts, so if not debugging should be fairly
