If you attempt to make a physical disk resource dependent on another resource, and the physical disk resource is also the quorum device, you may observe the following error message:

Error 5069 - The cluster quorum resource is not allowed to have any

The quorum resource should not have any dependencies on any other resources. However, it is acceptable for other resources to be dependent on the physical disk resource that is also the quorum device. By definition, the quorum device must be accessible to bring other resources online. Therefore, if the quorum resource were to wait on any other resource to reach an online state, the cluster service could not start.

To avoid the error message, do not attempt to make the quorum device dependent upon any other resource. Also, keep this condition in mind when changing the quorum disk designation to an existing physical disk resource, in case it has a dependency on some other resource.
