NFS mount as quorum disk

NFS mount as quorum disk

Guys, simple question: can I use a nfs mount as a quorum disk in an openvms cluster?

Re: NFS mount as quorum disk

Fernando,

As far as I can see, no.

Quorum is checked very early in the startup sequence, far before TCP/IP services can be started.

Analytically, even if one were to have NFS working, one needs RMS to start NFS, but RMS uses locking, which requires quorum to be established first (which is circular).

The quorum disk needs to be accessible directly (it cannot be only accessible via MSCP serving).
