This issue has been solved. See solution.

 Applications being in an “unknown status”  on the other nodes in the cluster.  The VCS error logged the other nodes do not recognize the the applications because user id's associated with the applications are not recognized  /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Application/monitor[130]: RC:  not found User "" does not exist.Even though the users exists on all the nodes, the users home directory does not. Workaround but still getting error

So what is the VCS version you are using ? 

As mentioned in the tech article, do you have home directory configured in the failover service group ?

Can you paste the resource defination of application resource from the file ?
