Hello experts,

I've read through tons of webpage and I cant seem to find a hard answer.

We are in process of setting up a HP P2000 with our G8 servers and was wondering if the Quorum actually needs its own physical disk in the array? I mean do we have to actually waste a whole physical disk for this?

Thanks!

So, create a small LUN (1GB-4GB) for the Quroum Disk. (iSCSI), it does not have to be very large

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

But my question is do I have to assign this LUN to a physical disk just for the Quorum or is it safe just to use 1GB from my existing RAID 10 array that resides on the P2000?

1GB from an existing RAID 10 is fine.

Perfect - thanks.
Just some sites out there say they should reside on their "own" physical disk.

Yes, in the old days, when we had physical servers and local storage!

it may have been RAID 1 (mirror) and used as Quroum!
