# Configure Cluster Quorum node weight settings

While using SQL AlwaysOn in connection with a third node on a different location as a DR solution, the third node is needed only in case there is a real Disaster Recovery.

For this purpose in most cases a manual intervention/failover is needed and you need to align your DR Cluster Node Weight for it. You can use following PowerShell snippet:

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9  Import-Module FailoverClusters $node = 'AlwaysOnNode1' (Get-ClusterNode$node).NodeWeight = 0 $cluster = (Get-ClusterNode$node).Cluster $nodes = Get-ClusterNode -Cluster$cluster \$nodes | Format-Table -property NodeName, State, NodeWeight
