Is it possible to configure the same qdevice as a quorum device for 2 different clusters?


Apr 8, 2021

So I have a host (a PBS) acting as a Qdevice which votes for a cluster.

Does someone know if it's possible to use the same host for voting in another cluster?

Thanks in advance!

The Qdevice in Proxmox is provided by "corosync-qnetd" -
The man page for "corosync-qnetd" says:

corosync-qnetd is a daemon running outside of the cluster with the purpose of providing a vote to the corosync-qdevice model net. It's
 designed to support multiple clusters and be almost configuration and state free. New clusters are handled dynamically and no
 configuration file exists. It's also able to run as non-root user - which is recommended. Connection between the corosync-qdevice model
net client can be optionally configured with TLS client certificate checking. The communication protocol between server and client is
designed to be very simple and allow backwards compatibility.

this is also how we use qdevices in our CI/CD.
