To be sure, you can extract the installed packages from one of the running nodes and from the failing one

rpm -qa | sort > /tmp/installed.rpms ( for example )

and compare both files to see if you have the same software. Core dumps in this case smells a failing libraries ( the new node is the same architecture ? )

only an idea
