Proxmox Corosync quorum votes change


May 13, 2019
Hi guys !

I have problem/question: now i have 8 nodes proxmox cluster but i wanna to have only 2 nodes online 6 nodes offline.

So if i change in
quorum_votes: 1
change to
quorum_votes: 2

on two nodes i will have quorum if only 2 nodes from 8 will be online?

It's this safe and possible to change quorum votes for nodes.
I understand manual but is there possibility to change quorum votes for one node, so one node will have more votes than other nodes
THX, i will try to change numer of votes later.

@Chris do you think this is possible to do change number of votes per node to make 8 node cluster working with only two nodes online? Somebody tried this?
