Simple Quorum and MNS Quorum

Discussion in 'Clustering' started by S H A R I Q U E, Jun 1, 2008.

  1. I have two questions.
    Q1. Is simple quorum available in Windows Server 2003 Ent. Edition.

    Q2. For MNS Quorum, Do i need minimum of 3 nodes to initialize clusters
    according to MNS mathematical formula, that is, (No. of Nodes in Cluster/2
    +1 ) .
    What if i have two nodes in cluster only due to budgetry constraints and Can
    i use force quorum registry editing technique to bring cluster services
    online in two node cluster.

    Q3. For MNS quorum, can i use same SCSI disk hosting operating system or do
    i need separate SCSI disk?

    Hi.

    Answer1: Yes

    Answer2: You can use 2 Nodes + 1 File Share Witness (FSW)

    Answer3: For MNS each node stores this info under
    %windir%\cluster\MNS.<resourceGUID>$.

    Best Regards.
