To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
To open Computer Management, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.
To start the Cluster service even if there are problems with the quorum resource, you can use fixquorum as a start parameter. That is, in Start parameters, type /fixquorum, and then click Start.
