    1) When we have a 2 node cluster and 1 node fails. As intended, the quorum disk informs the cluster about the failed node which is now fenced. Does the quorum disk get the vote from the running node(only) for keeping the cluster up in a 2 node cluster ? If it is so, can this be called voting(in a democratic sense) or does it have a different technical name to it.
    2) Can we mirror a quorum disk to achieve hardware redundancy ? Can we use 2 quorum disks – like master-slave ?…..

    This scenario is also known as “Split Brain”, right ? (http://linux-ha.org/wiki/Split_Brain)
