bash-3.00# ./clsetup
  >>> Initial Cluster Setup <<<

    This program has detected that the cluster "installmode" attribute is
    still enabled. As such, certain initial cluster setup steps will be
    performed at this time. This includes adding any necessary quorum
    devices, then resetting both the quorum vote counts and the
    "installmode" property.

    Please do not proceed if any additional nodes have yet to join the
    cluster.
    Is it okay to continue (yes/no) [yes]?  
    Do you want to add any quorum devices (yes/no) [yes]?  

    Following are supported Quorum Devices types in Sun Cluster. Please
    refer to Sun Cluster documentation for detailed information on these
    supported quorum device topologies.

    What is the type of device you want to use
        1) Directly attached shared disk
        2) Network Attached Storage (NAS) from Network Appliance
        3) Quorum Server

        q) Return to the quorum menu
    Option:  1



  >>> Add a SCSI Quorum Disk <<<

    A SCSI quorum device is considered to be any Sun Cluster supported
    attached storage which connected to two or more nodes of the cluster.
    Dual-ported SCSI-2 disks may be used as quorum devices in two-node
    clusters. However, clusters with more than two nodes require that
    SCSI-3 PGR disks be used for all disks with more than two node-to-disk
    paths.
    You can use a disk containing user data or one that is a member of a
    device group as a quorum device
    For more information on supported quorum device topologies, see the
    Sun Cluster documentation.
    Is it okay to continue (yes/no) [yes]?  
    Which global device do you want to use (d<N>)?  d29
    Is it okay to proceed with the update (yes/no) [yes]?  

clquorum add d29
clquorum:  (C192716) I/O error.

Command failed.
Press Enter to continue:  




I get this error on both nodes. d29 is on both servers and has been labeled

Three things spring to mind. One, that the disk doesn't exist. You should try running scgdevs to create the necessary devices.

The next possibility is that the disk exists but is not shared.

And the last thought is that the disk is indeed having hardware problems. Check the messages file for this.

One node, the master did not have a vote. I had to run the following

bash-3.00# ./clquorum enable   master_node
