All nodes are configured to have quorum votes

Your cluster quorum configuration will be changed to the configuration shown above.

An error was encountered while modifying the quorum settings.
Your cluster quorum settings have not been changed.
There was an error configuring the file share witness '\\dc1\Cluster_Vote'.
