Use the clquorum status command to determine the following information:
Total configured votes
Current present votes
Votes required for quorum
See the cluster(1CL) man page.
Both nodes and quorum devices contribute votes to the cluster to form quorum.
A node contributes votes depending on the node's state:
A node has a vote count of one when it boots and becomes a cluster member.
A node has a vote count of zero when the node is being installed.
A node has a vote count of zero when a system administrator places the node into maintenance state.
Quorum devices contribute votes that are based on the number of nodes that are connected to the device. When you configure a quorum device, Oracle Solaris Cluster software assigns the quorum device a vote count of N-1 where N is the number of connected nodes to the quorum device. For example, a quorum device that is connected to two nodes with nonzero vote counts has a quorum count of one (two minus one).
A quorum device contributes votes if one of the following two conditions are true:
At least one of the nodes to which the quorum device is currently attached is a cluster member.
At least one of the nodes to which the quorum device is currently attached is booting, and that node was a member of the last cluster partition to own the quorum device.
You configure quorum devices during the cluster installation, or afterwards, by using the procedures that are described in Chapter 6, Administering Quorum, in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide .
