Hi I would like to set up a cluster with 4, max. 5 Nodes.
The catch is that during most times only one or two nodes will be running.
In my attempts so far I had often had problems with not having quorum even when using a qdevice.

The reason for the cluster is that if I need the extra power I can just distribute the VM's very easily over the cluster.

Any advice how to set that up? Thanks a lot!
This is generally not a supported setup. But have a look into man votequorum.
