Quorum Disk

Last Modified: 2012-08-20
I have a two node sql cluster,
When quorum disk aka witness disk is on node 1 along with all other services, and i kill node one, it doesnt failover. I might not be waiting long enough here

When node 1 has the quorum and node two has the other services, and I fail node 2, it works just fine, as the quorum disk never went offline.

It seems like the quorum disk doesnt move to the live node.

Is this true? Am I not waiting enought time? what is the best option for a two node clister. I have node and disk majority configured.
