Quorum Question in Skype / Windows Fabric RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi!

    So, a bit of a basic question!

    OK - so i'm aware that to start a pool initially you need 85% of FE online to achieve Quorum then going forward to maintain 50%

    My question is why?

    When the pool starts, to split your Routing Groups to 1 Primary and 2 Backups you need 3 servers, so if you have a 7 pool cluster why do you need 5 servers? As long as you have 3 you should be ok right?

    Same goes for the Pool level Quorum – I would have thought as long as 3 servers remain we’d be ok…

    I’ve seen a lot of websites that detail the number of servers required for quorum but none that say why?
