Move the Quorum Disk Group

Recently, I worked on a project to migrate data from a four node cluster (3 active, 1 Passive) from an old SAN to a new SAN using SAN Copy by EMC. Once, the data was copied I failed the services around and verified that each service would work on each node. Here is how I moved the quorum disk to each node.

To move the quorum disk group you have to run the command listed below in the command prompt. Make sure you run the command prompt with Administrator rights or you might see an access is denied error.

Cluster group “Cluster Group” /move:<newnode>

If the cluster disk group was active on the db1 node and you wanted to migrate the group to db2 you would use the command below in the command prompt.

Cluster group “Cluster Group” /move:db2
