Cannot Initialize CMAP Service on all nodes of cluster

I have had a working cluster of 5 for a few years. After a power outage over the weekend, I am unable to get the cluster to come up. Each node is up but the cluster is down so I can't start my vm's. I get the same error on each when using "pvecm status" I get "Cannot Initialize CMAP Service". I'm at a loss as to what to do to correct it since they are all giving the error. Any suggestions?

you have to check why corosync can't start.

journalctl -u corosync
