Re: Configure a quorum disk

Flavio,

your question is unclear as to the OS it applies to, and your other questions are mostly HPUX, while this is the OpenVMS forum.

Anyway, assuming you ARE meaning VMS:

In SYSGEN you specify (for EACH node of the cluster, the SAME value!)

QDSKVOTES = 1 ! normally, but any non-zero is ok
DISK_QUORUM =
The first node that boots with VAXCLUSTER=1 or 2 will use DISK_QUORUM and create the quorum file.
Any subsequent boot will find & use it.

If this is NOT for VMS, please seek help elsewhere.

Proost.

Have one on me.

Re: Configure a quorum disk

The question is unclear. It looks like you are talking about Service Guard.
If I'm right, a quorum disk is necessary for a cluster from two computers. You don't have to configure anything, just run
cmquery -C /etc/cmcluster/cluster.ascii -n node1 -n node2
and edit the /etc/cmcluster/cluster.ascii file according to your needs. At the end of the file you'll find "lock disk" definition. This is it.
