So in my proxmox tutorial I explain how to remove a node from a cluster. I had to do that recently, and it … kinda gave me a hard time, so I want to explain how I fixed it here.
Normally, with all VMs and containers moved off the node and backed up, you’d do :
pvecm delnode nodename
And that would be sufficient, only this time, it removed the node from the quorum, only the GUI was still showing it as present, only … not there anymore. No matter what I did I couldn’t get rid of it.
Ended up shutting the node off physically, and checking to see if it was in
/etc/pve/nodes … which it indeed was. I then did:
mv /etc/pve/nodes/nodename /root
And it disappeared and all was well. I only mved it to root in case something would have gone wrong, then I could have just mved it back again.
Maybe this will help someone somewhere. lol
