Microsoft Clustering

Microsoft Clustering

This is first time setting up Commvault for Windows cluster support so here it goes.  I have installed both the Idata agent for Windows on both physical nodes of the cluster.  On both those nodes I have it backing up the physical drives of those two servers and on both have the backup system state selected (C:S:T: respectively).  I had purchased the Virtual File System Idata agent and installed it on Virtual Server Active node and its passive node.  I have backup schedule for the Virtual box that backs up its shared disk. The question I have is the Quorrum disk.  Do I back this up on the physical client or as I am doing it now throught the Virtual server? The way I understand it that is really important data for the clustering operation and backs up during the System State backup which both my Physical nodes are set to do.         

RE: Microsoft Clustering

System state backup on either of the nodes will fix this.

The quorum isn't really a big deal as its pretty easy to recreate in the event of a disaster anyway.
