Use the lsquorum command to list the quorum devices that the system uses to store quorum data.


lsquorum [ -nohdr ] [ -delimdelimiter ] [ quorum_index ]


(Optional) By default, headings are displayed for each column of data in a concise style view, and for each item of data in a detailed style view. The nohdr parameter suppresses the display of these headings.
Note: If there is no data to be displayed, headings are not displayed.
(Optional) By default in a concise view, all columns of data are space-separated. The width of each column is set to the maximum width of each item of data. In a detailed view, each item of data has its own row, and if the headers are displayed, the data is separated from the header by a space. The delim parameter overrides this behavior. Valid input for the delim parameter is a 1-byte character. If you enter -delim : on the command line, the colon character (:) separates all items of data in a concise view; for example, the spacing of columns does not occur. In a detailed view, the data is separated from its header by the specified character.
(Optional) Specifies the quorum device by its index number. When you use this parameter, a detailed view of the specified device is returned. If you do not specify a device, then a concise view of all quorum devices is displayed.


This command displays a concise list or a detailed view of the MDisks or drives that the system is using to store quorum data. This information can be used to ensure that the quorum candidates are on separate storage subsystems.
Note: The object type is either MDisk or drive, but only MDisks are used to hold quorum data. If the quorum object type is a drive, the controller ID and name fields are blank.
This table provides the attribute values that can be displayed as output view data.
Table 1. lsquorum output
Attribute Possible Values
quorum_index Indicates the quorum device by index number.
status Indicates the quorum device status.
name Indicates the name of the object that is used as the quorum device.
controller_id Indicates the ID of the controller of an MDisk object that is used as the quorum device.
controller_name Indicates the name of the controller of an MDisk object that is used as the quorum device.
active Indicates whether this quorum is the active quorum device the system uses as a tie breaker.
object_type Indicates the type of object the quorum device uses.
override Indicates whether the automatic quorum selection for this quorum device was overridden.
site_id Indicates the site value for the quorum device. This numeric value is 1, 2, 3, or blank.
site_name Indicates the site name for the quorum device (MDisks or drives). This is an alphanumeric value or is blank.

For the quorum application, this name identifies the site it is deployed at. By default, this name is the local host's IP address, but a custom alias can also be set.
