Re: No Quorum

It means you have enabled the quorum feature and it is enforcing it.

Quorum essentially means that you have requested that a quorum of disks be present before allowing the logical volume to go online. If you have a volume and say that it is to be mirrored to two different disks then one disk can be down and you will still have a quorum, lose one more and you lack a quorum.

If you have a raid 1 mirroring with a single mirror you lose the quorum when the mirror goes down.

Re: No Quorum

Hi Eric:

In the AutoRAID context, this means that too many drives haves failed or are unavailable. This is very common if someone has pulled the drives from an AutoRAID and then tried to power it up. In the worst case, the may have to delete the logical drives and format the array. I hope you have good backup.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
