deploying cyrus on a cluster filesystem

I am trying to deploy Cyrus/Postfix/... on a cluster file system, using SLOX. I take special care in configuring my two node cluster, where the domain is set up as xxx.com. Then I create node1.xxx.com and node2.xxx.com.
I have put all the important data directories on top of our cluster file system, such as:
If I have a 2 node cluster (node1 and node2). I can log into node1 as the administrator and create user1 and user2. Now I can log in on node1 as user1 and send mail to user2. Log in on node1 as user2 and I can read this email, so far so good.
Next, I log into node2 as user2. No problem logging in, this means that my ldap data is availble on the cluster file system. However, once I log in I am not able to see, send or receive any emails. However, I am able to see all my shared data and contact information.
Why is this? Given the fact that /var/spool/imap is on a cluster file system and it is visible from both node1 and node2, shouldn't I be able to see my emails?
Please help. I do not think I need to use murder if I don't care to have both node1 and node2 simultaneously run the cyrus service. Do I understand this correctly? Meaning, I do the following in chronological order:
- 'rccyrus start' on node1
- exchange emails,
- do a 'rccyrus stop' on node1
- do a 'rccyrus start' on node2
- log in as user1 or user2 and look for emails.
