[SOLVED] cannot remove MDS

I wanted to use the Cephfs (I'm still testing proxmox for migrating from XCP-ng).

I then wanted to remove everything, but I ended up with a standby MDS (only) and I cannot remove it.
It seems to be that the Host is 'Unknown' and when I delete/stop it, I have : "entry has no host"
I also tried to remove it with the CLI but I could not find the mds number for the 'ceph mds rm <int>' command.

How may I resolve this ?

Thanks !
I could workaround the issue by creating it again on the proper host, then the Host field is correct.

Then Destroying it was possible.
