Hello,

This is a simple question.  I need to change the Quorum Disk's Partition votes from 3 to 2.  If I do the change using LUCI (or directly in the cluster.conf), do I need to restart the cluster?

Thanks in advance!

From this manual:
http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/4/html/Cluster_Administration/s1-general-prop-conga-CA.html (3.4)
somewhere in the middle:
Note:
Clicking Apply on the Quorum Partition tab propagates changes to the cluster configuration file (/etc/cluster/cluster.conf) in each cluster node. However, for the quorum disk to operate, you must restart the cluster (refer to Section 4.1, “Starting, Stopping, and Deleting Clusters”).

So only the config file is updated & distributed (if using luci).
If luci isn't used then you need to edit the relevant file on all members..
