don't do it
but if you only want to test, and only on a test cluster
- delete your Q:\MSCS content
(might not be that easy, as cluster will have handles open to this disk and
I think you can do the following to restore functionality
1) shutdown all nodes but 1
2) on the working node, make sure cluster service is not started
3) open a CMD prompt
4) goto c:\windows\cluster
5) start the cluster service on the CMD line like this "clussvc.exe
this will start the cluster service and it will rewrite the quorum.
This is a "single node mode" so you will not be able to start the other
6) open cluadmin and check all is OK and close again.
7) hit (CTRL)-C in the CMD window to stop clussvc
8) start cluster service using services control panel
9) open cluadmin and check all is OK
10) start other nodes (1 by 1) and check if you can move groups up/down
again, for testing on a test cluster
do NOT do this on your product
please note there are different command line switches
/fixquorum -- will not rewrite a new quorum, but will try to fix a corrupted
/noquorumlogging -- will allow you to run clussvc without a quorum (you can
open cluadmin and fix things)
