I am new to Clustering and Availability groups. I am creating a 4 node Windows 2012 Cluster with SQL 2016 enterprise. SQL will not be clustered we are just using the availability group option. The cluster is setup like: 3 servers on one site and 1 server offsite. Our goal is to have multiple databases on the servers Server 1 would be primary for availability group 1 and server 2 would be primary for availability group 2. Server 3 and 4 would be primary failover availability groups as well as server 1 being a failover for server 2 and server 2 being a failover for server 1. Server 4 would also be the offsite DR server.

I have the windows cluster setup to have the Quorum drive as a file share that all 4 servers can get too. One of the databases on the servers will need access to the file system for import and export of csv, xls, etc. files.

How can all 4 servers have access to this drive, when I have one server in a different location on a different subnet?

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Get really friendly with your network and security teams. Ask them, politely if need be, to create a file share for that folder and allow your service accounts access to said file share.

Other than the service account, this really doesn't have any involvement with SQL Server.
