       mkqdisk - Cluster Quorum Disk Utility


       Use of this command can cause the cluster to malfunction.


       mkqdisk [-?|-h] | [-L] | [-f label] [-c device  -l label] [-d [-d ...]]


       The mkqdisk command is used to create a  new  quorum  disk  or  display
       existing quorum disks accessible from a given cluster node.


       -c device -l label
              Initialize  a  new  cluster  quorum disk.  This will destroy all
              data on the given device.  If a cluster is currently using  that
              device  as  a  quorum disk, the entire cluster will malfunction.
              Do not run this on an active cluster  when  qdiskd  is  running.
              Only  one  device  on  the SAN should ever have the given label;
              using multiple different devices is currently not supported  (it
              is  expected  a  RAID array is used for quorum disk redundancy).
              The label can be any textual string up to 127 characters  -  and
              is   therefore   enough  space  to  hold  a  UUID  created  with

       -f label
              Find the cluster quorum disk with the given  label  and  display
              information about it.

       -L     Display information on all accessible cluster quorum disks.

       -d     Increase  debugging  level.   Specify  multiple  times  for more
              information.  Currently,  specifying  more  than  twice  has  no
