Backup the quorum disk?

When using Networker to backup a MS Cluster, I backup the physical nodes with save set = All. But is this enough, to restore the cluster if a restore is required?

In the admin guide it states that MSCS is part of the System State or VSS System Services, but again is MSCS enough for restoring the cluster or do i have to backup the quorum disk also.

Re: Backup the quorum disk?

Quorum is part of system saveset so that should be enough.  But in case of quorum trouble I find is more quicked and less painful just to reset quorum.  Of course, that might not be aplicable to all cases...

Hi Hrvoje

Thank you for your answer.

I think that you are right in your consumption that system saveset should be enough. but I need to know for sure.

I don't have the opportunities to test it at the moment, so that's why I ask the question here at powerlink.

Sure no problem... I think it would be worth of trying... if nothing at least to make some sort of procedure document.. and it makes feel more safe after all.
