Hi,

We are migrating between SANs and I need to move the Witness/Quorum for a Windows 2008 R2 cluster from one CX SAN to a VNX SAN.

I have been successful moving the Quorum in Windows 2003 clusters but I have never done a Windows 2008 R2 one.

Does anyone has any guideline for me?

Thank you.

From cluster manager, right click on the cluster, go to More Actions, select Configure cluster Quorum Settings. Change from Node and Disk Majority and switch to only Node Majority. Once that is complete, disconnect the old LUN from the cluster. Add the new LUN to the cluster, and then do back to the quorum configuration and switch back to node and disk majority.
