Has anyone documented a procedure to migrate a cluster from a 2k3
cluster to 2k8? I've heard clustering is different in 2k8. How do you
move the quorum? Any knowledge of this would be helpful

Thank you!

So it looks like I have to have/create an entire new quorum resource, I
can't just move it like I used to be able to do in 2003.

Again this is going from 2003 to 2008.

If you mean can you change ownership of the quorum, you can do this via
command line issuing the command:

cluster group "Cluster Group" /move

If you mean chaning the quorum disk designation, this can still be done in
Windows 2008 using the Cluster Administrator. Just right-click on the
cluster and choose More Actions > Configure Cluster Quorum Settings. The
wizard will guide you thru the rest.
