Hyper-V Quorum for 4 Nodes and two storages

I'am testing in a lab environment Hyper-V Failover-Szenarios. We now have 4 Hyper-V Host with 2 Storages separeted in two locations.

Location 1
Virtual Machine 1&2

Location 2
Virtual Machine 3&4

All Devices in the same cluster are linked with 10 GB (LAN and ISCSI). What would here be the best choice for the quorum configuration?

If i do not configure someting...the quorum is p.e. on HV1. When the Storage1 fails with the quorum on it...the whole cluster crashes...even the 2 nodes in the other location and the storage2 goes also offline.
with the separete storage.

thanks you for your answer.

Set up a 1.5GB dedicated LUN on _each_ storage.

Make that LUN shared between the two nodes and connect it.

Format the LUN NTFS, assign it a letter, and label it Quorum or the like.

In Failover Cluster Manager run the Quorum configuration wizard and choose the newly created partition.

The cluster service will take care of arbitrating the quorum disk between nodes.

NOTE: Do NOT add the quorum/witness disk to Clustered Shared Volumes. Leave it as is.
