diskutil - Administers quorum partitions in a cluster.
diskutil -I | -p | -t
The diskutil utility enables you to administer the quorum partitions in
You can specify the following diskutil options:
-I Initializes the quorum partitions. The -I option deletes any
cluster database and cluster state information from the quorum
partitions. Therefore, only invoke diskutil -I when you want to
initialize the quorum partitions as part of the cluster software
installation procedure. Do not invoke diskutil -I on a running
-p Displays a summary of the header data structure for the quorum
partitions. You can check if the quorum partitions are mapped
to the same physical disk on both cluster systems by invoking
diskutil -p on each system and ensuring that the output is
identical. If the output is not identical, the quorum
partitions may not be set up correctly.

-t Verifies that the cluster system can read information from the
quorum partitions. When you invoke diskutil -t, the cluster
system identifies the quorum partition devices and then attempts
to read information from both partitions. The read is
successful if the system determines that the data is a valid set
of initialized cluster state information. If the read is not
successful, the quorum partitions may not be set up correctly.
# diskutil -t
Successfully verified that the quorum partitions are accessible.
Note that other diskutil options are only for development, and should
not be used.
