You have five servers that run Windows Server 2012 R2. The servers have the Failover Clustering feature installed. You deploy a new cluster named Cluster1.
Cluster1 is configured as shown in the following table.
Server1, Server2, and Server3 are configured as the preferred owners of the cluster roles. Dynamic quorum management is disabled.
You plan to perform hardware maintenance on Server3.
You need to ensure that if the WAN link between Site1 and Site2 fails while you are performing maintenance on Server3, the cluster resource will remain available
What should you do?
A. Add a file share witness in Site1.
B. Enable DrainOnShutdown on Cluster1.
C. Remove the node vote for Server4 and Server5.
D. Remove the node vote for Server3.
Recommended Adjustments to Quorum Voting
When enabling or disabling a given WSFC (Windows Server Failover Clustering) node’s vote, follow these guidelines:
Exclude secondary site (here site2) nodes (here server4 and server5). In general, do not give votes to WSFC nodes that reside at a secondary disaster recovery
site. You do not want nodes in the secondary site to contribute to a decision to take the cluster offline when there is nothing wrong with the primary site.
