We failed over the services to the passive node. In this process quorum has not moved to the passive node although all the resources moved to the other node. Does it will have any affect or is it expected ? Can we move the quorum resource to other node?

The clustergroup doesn't failover automatically along with the application groups.

You can safely move this group on to the active cluster. Im not aware of any impact if you don't. Its just a preference.

Thanks Jimbo. But how to move the quorum to the active node. I don't get any option when I right click on the quorum drive for move resource to another node. We are planning to patch the passive node in couple of days. I got the option simulate failure of this resource. This is what we need to do ?

If we restart the node automatically does it move to the active node ? Please advise.

I tried it on a test server using the command prompt command. I can move the cluster group but i still see the quorum drive on the passive node only. It's not moving to the active node.

Restarting the passive node would do it, but that's overkill.

I use powershell when moving the cluster groups around.

From a command prompt run the follwoing and note the results for the QUORUM group

cluster group




Use the following to move the group

cluster group QUORUM /moveto:newnode




Once done, run this again and check

cluster group

Perry,

I try to do it but it failed throwing the following error--

System error 5013 has occurred (0x00001395).
The cluster group could not be found.

I can see the cluster group status from the command cluster group. It's on node1 and online.

actually i found an article .......

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/90c13166-7f95-4ea8-9cac-580426d2598b/quorum-drive-not-moving-in-2node-cluster

Actually you don't need to. This layer of clustering has been abstracted from the administrator as it used to cause confusion for some administrators in Windows Server 2003 server clusters. Now this is managed entirely by the cluster service. If you shut down the node that contains the quorum disk (if you're using that mode), it will automatically be moved to another node.It's not something you need to deal with any more.

You should still be able to move it using the commands above, works just fine for me
