    Voting Disk Backup and Recovery

    Voting disk manages node membership information and it is used by Cluster synchronization services demon (CSSD).

    Backing up Voting Disks:-
    Run the below command to back up the voting disk.
    $ dd if=voting_disk_name of=backup_file_name
    or
    $ dd if=voting_disk_name of=backup_file_name bs=4k

    Recovering Voting Disks:-
    Run the below command to recover a voting disk
    $ dd if=backup_file_name of=voting_disk_name

    You can change the Voting Disk Configuration dynamically after the installation.
    Please note that you need to run the command as “root”.

    Run the below command to add a voting disk:
    # crsctl add css votedisk_path

    You can have upto 32 Voting disks.

    Run the following command to remove a voting disk:
    # crsctl delete css votedisk_path
