Hi all.

A colleague of mine have been so kind to rename the last node in a non functioning cluster. Now - I would have preferred to have the cluster destroyed first. But now we are in the below situation.

Do we have any other means than re-renaming the node to destroy the cluster at the current stage ?

Any input is highly appreciated :)

    Hello @agepeder

    I would recommend you to check and apply the cmdlet Clear-ClusterNode, as it can help to remove the remaining parts of that Node:

    Hope this helps with your query,
