How to reconfigure Quorum Witness Share in a VSA 12.6 Cluster

Hello,

I'm running a VSA 12.6 on a VMWare VSphere 6.7 Cluster and the Quorum Witness Share need to be changed (The Server hosting the NFS Share is changing.).

This system is a 2 node cluster with this Quorum Witness Share configured.

Can I perform this without downtime?

How is the procedure performing this action?

Is there any risk/possibility to have the replication stopped and the disks not online?

 

Thank you for your support.

Kind regards Bernd Schlaupitz

Sorry about the delay in response.

You can configure Quorum Witness on another Server without downtime as long as the Managers on the 2 VSAs are running fine.

Below Advisory has information on the Quorum Witness and Configuration.

It is always good to have a Back Up before you make any changes.
