Created a cluster on pc1, tried to join from pc2

detected the following error(s):
* this host already contains virtual guests
TASK ERROR: Check if node may join a cluster failed!

there is nothing on pc1 - brand new install

and can't delete the cluster from pc1 - can't delete from self - yes read the docs!

Ahh .. penny dropped!
The pc (node) joining the cluster should NOT have any VMs on it
