Cluster Quorum (2008/2008 R2) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I'd like some assistance, we've been using Win2k3 Clusters the last few years and I've built 20-30 of them. Now were starting to deploy Win2k8 R2 Clusters for File Server and also SQL.

    However I can't seem to find some clear documents on steps on setting up the cluster. We will have SAN disk and a 3 node cluster.

    I've added the "feature" to the Win2k8 R2 server and tried to setup the cluster but noticed a few differences:

    -it doesn't ask for a cluster service account like Win2k3

    -it doesn;t ask for a cluster Quorum drive, I'm using a 3 node cluster and the MS doc recommends a "node majority" quorum but I don't see a quorum drive after creating the first node in the cluster. Is it needed?


    Many thanks.....
