Could you help on this please.


  • Can I ask why you are trying to remove node2 from the cluster? That is not in the lab instructions.

  • This is not for lab, getting above error in our environment. here question is why above error getting and how can remove existing nodes.

  • Without more information about your cluster configuration, I don't know why you are seeing this error. Perhaps you should open a support case.

  • Ok, thanks
