Dear Expert,

Just one quick question.

This week I will change a cluster quorum type for Hyper-V cluster from node majority to node and disk majority.

Question is :

After I changed the quorum type, do I need to reboot the cluster or server ?

Rgds,

Hardi

As far as I can remember you don't have restart the cluster or the server. John Savill also doesn't mention rebooting in his following post.

No you do not.  I did the same thing you're attempting to do last month and did not have to reboot the server.  Anytime you do anything with the cluster, the only thing you would restart is the cluster service.  The server does not need to be restarted (unless you want to test the failover cluster in itself.)
