Is it possible to just run the wizard and point to new file share?

Looks like it should work. I will give it a try when I have my next maintenance window this weekend, just in case.

I used the following command to change the location of the File Share Witness resource on the current FSW.

cluster res "File Share Witness" /priv SharePath=\\pluto\FSM_DIR_MAIL
