The picture shows a very basic setup I have in the Lab. The idea was to build a cluster that would failover from 1 node to the other if it fails. Each node would be in a seperate data centre.. Sounds simple but unless I am missing somthing the microsoft implementation of clustering wont let me do this.
If I select Node Majority for quorum config, the cluster will fail if I loose 1 node. - No good
If I select Node and Disk Majority, I can loose a node as long as I dont loose the disk. Thats fine except if I loose the data center with the disk the cluster fails. (This is the same for Node and File Share Majoirty)
If I select no majority. Disk Only - I introduce a new single point of failure which seems to defeat the object of the exercise.
What I want to do is keep the cluster available until the last node fails. Am I correct in thinking this is not possible?
Thanks in advance.
