There is no PostgreSQL version numbered that.

So you have two application servers and two database servers? Two servers
with the application and database on each? I don't really understand.

In what sense do they get shifted to another server, if the postmaster
doesn't start up?

Is there a start up script for postgres?

I don't understand this sentence either. But. . .

. . .mounting a directory does not entail starting a database server. These
are separate problems. You have to have the PostgreSQL data area mounted,
and _then_ start PostgreSQL. Perhaps your cluster thingy isn't doing it in
the right order.
In any case,

this doesn't seem to be a bug with PostgreSQL at all. If anything, it has
something to do with this cluster thing you're using. That's in general a
dangerous thing to do, and requires plenty of care. See the high
availability parts of the manual to read general discussions of this, but
if you're having specific problems, I think you need to talk to the people
who make the cluster software.
