Moving windows2003 quorum partition from SAN to NAS

Hi ,

We are the processess of changing our storage from SAN to NAS. This is the same location where the widows quorum drive is also located. I created a 2 Gb drive in NAS and mounted to both the cluster servers, copied the content from SAn and copied to NAS drive, renamed the partition to Q drive with volume name Quorum. But it didn't worked. Can anyone help me what all are the other steps which i need to do .

Create two 2GB disks, from cluster administrator mount one of disks as a physical disk resource (not drive Q) under the cluster group.
Right select he cluster itself -> properties select quorum tab change quorum to the new disk.
Mount second disk as a physical disk resource as the new Q follow the steps above.  Delete the 1st new quorum.
The cluster should write the data it needs to the new quorums, ensure drive is ntfs permissions are correct.
Also ensure the default cluster group can move between both nodes.

Make the first NAS drive as X: then move the quorum to X: and then remove the SAN Q: after the cluster is happy move the quorum to a new Q NAS drive remove the X:.

It appears the comments by 65td solved the issue shibint had, yet no award?
If the proposed solution (comments) was inadequate then Author comments to that effect should have been posted.
