Set-ClusterQuorum

Set-ClusterQuorum

Configure quorum options for a failover cluster.

Syntax

Set-ClusterQuorum [-InputObject <psobject>] [-Cluster <string>] [-DiskOnly <string>] [-NodeAndDiskMajority <string>] [-NodeAndFileShareMajority <string>] [-NodeMajority] [<CommonParameters>]
  • InputObject

  • Cluster

  • DiskOnly

  • NodeAndDiskMajority

  • NodeAndFileShareMajority

  • NodeMajority

Detailed Description

The quorum configuration in a failover cluster determines the number of failures that the cluster can sustain. If an additional failure occurs, the cluster must stop running. The relevant failures in this context are failures of nodes or, in some cases, of a disk witness (which contains a copy of the cluster configuration) or file share witness.

Parameters

Cluster

Specifies the name of the cluster to run this cmdlet on. If you type "-Cluster ." or omit the parameter, the cmdlet runs on the local cluster.

DiskOnly

Causes the cluster quorum to be set to disk only type. This is not recommended as it creates a single point of failure to the cluster.

Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

Command Prompt: C:\PS>
 
Set-ClusterQuorum -NodeMajority 
 
Cluster                    QuorumResource                  QuorumType 
-------                    --------------                  ---------- 
cluster1                                                 NodeMajority

Description

-----------

This command changes the quorum configuration to Node Majority on the local cluster.

 

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

Command Prompt: C:\PS>
 
Set-ClusterQuorum -NodeAndDiskMajority "Cluster Disk 7" 
 
Cluster                    QuorumResource                  QuorumType 
-------                    --------------                  ---------- 
cluster1                   Cluster Disk 7         NodeAndDiskMajority

Description

-----------

This command changes the quorum configuration to Node and Disk Majority on the local cluster, using Cluster Disk 7 for the disk witness.

 

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

Command Prompt: C:\PS>
 
Set-ClusterQuorum -NodeAndFileShareMajority \\fileserver\fsw 
 
Cluster               QuorumResource                       QuorumType 
-------               --------------                       ---------- 
cluster1              File Share Witness     NodeAndFileShareMajority

Description

-----------

This command changes the quorum configuration to Node and File Share Majority on the local cluster, using \\fileserver\fsw for the file share witness.
