Adding a Volume Manager Disk Group resource for the quorum

You add a Volume Manager Disk Group resource corresponding to the disk group that you created for the quorum. You do not set any dependencies for this resource.

You first create a service or application for the quorum resource, name it (for example, QUORUM), and add the resource to it.

  1. From the Start menu (the Start screen on Windows 2012 operating systems), click Administrative Tools.
  2. Launch the Failover Cluster Manager snap-in by clicking Failover Cluster Manager.
  3. Verify that the cluster is online on the same node where you created the disk group.
  4. In the left pane of Failover Cluster Management, right-click Services and Applications and select More Actions > Create Empty Service or Application.
  5. Right-click the new group and rename it, for example QUORUM.
  6. Move the clustered disk group resource from the Available Storage to Quorum Group.
  7. Right-click the clustered disk group resource, and in the General tab of the Properties dialog box, change the name of the resource in the Resource Name field, for example, QUORUM_DG_RES.
