In case you missed it, I held this in depth webinar on cluster quorums. In 30 minutes I go over everything you need to know about quorums, from node majority through Cloud Witness and everything in between. If you have additional questions about quorums post them as a comment on this article and I will be glad to help.

I know that I’m missing something, but I can’t work out what 🙂
Imagine a two node, cross site cluster (one node per site), and a FSW on a third site.
If the FSW fails, will both nodes go offline?
Would the result be the same for any cluster with an evenly split number of nodes (two / three / four nodes per site)?
You probably want to look at this article I wrote on quorums. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_press/archive/2014/04/28/from-the-mvps-understanding-the-windows-server-failover-cluster-quorum-in-windows-server-2012-r2.aspx
