    Cluster failover fails on a Windows 2003 SQL cluster because it is unable to mount the Quorum drive


      After reviewing KB76135 and seeing that it is a problem with the Quorum drive couldn't I just exclude the quorum drive from scanning and also be able to prevent this from happening? I am wonder about this because the cause i the Kb states:



      An analysis of the dump file shows the issue is caused while the disk is being locked by VSE mfehidk. The locked condition is exposed only during a failed Resource Move (cluster failover), which leads to the passive Node being unable to mount the Quorum drives.


      So would mfehidk even access the quorum drive if it was excluded?


      Thanks in advance.
