I have just set up a 2 node with qdevice cluster in my lab here and all seems to be wokring ok.

I'd like to add a third node to the cluster.

1. Should I turn off the qDevice BEFORE adding the new mode and as long as theres 3 nodes I don't need it to run any more?

2. Should I configure the cluster to not use the qDevice? If so how would I do that?
