Migrating 2k3 to 2k8 cluster

    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.

  3. 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.
