RE: [Linux-cluster] quorate error

If you change the quorum votes

Node 1: 2 
Node 2: 1
Node 3: 1 

Then Node 1 will stay up and have quorum since it has 1/2 of the votes.
The better way to do it is to have 4 nodes.

So this plan will fail :(.  We would need to have four nodes: two at the
main data centre and two at the DR centre?  That is unexpected.
There is no way around this?
