Activation of hosts - after maintenance, w.r.t gluster - checks that 
glusterd is connected and returns Peer status as connected.
The error seems to be in activating the gluster storage domain - 
hosted_storage. Did you see anything suspicious w.r.t this in vdsm logs?

Regarding the Host being unresponsive with "Heartbeat exceeded" - we 
have a bug logged on this which is being investigated - 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1331006. In this bug too, 
the host regains connectivity after ~ 2 mins time.
