Changing the quorum settings for a 2 node DAG with a File Share Witness RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 2 node DAG set up with a FSW running on one of the CAS servers.

    In EMC I can see the name of the Witness Server and the Witness Directory.

    However in Failover Cluster Manager the Quorum Configuration is set for Node Majority.

    It should be changed to 'Node and File Share majority'

    Will the change make the Cluster restart or cause the mailbox databases to unmount?

  • The question is whether the change will result in the cluster going down?

    This is a production env and I cannot 'try' something unless someone has tested it.


    No, it won't.

  • Run Set-DatabaseAvailabilityGroup without any parameters and see if that cleans it up.
