Cluster node stuck in UI

I have a cluster node that's in the UI only. Node had its hardware killed off. pvecm delnode got rid of it in the config, but the UI still shows it. Corosync config doesn't have the dead node. Any way to remove? Its not that annoying, but still somewhat annoying.

could it be that you have still some VM/CT configs for that node in /etc/pve/nodes/NAME/{lxc,qemu-server} ?

This serves as our guest registry, and if we have a guest we need to map it to a node, thus the node gets created in the WebUI, we do not know if the node was just temporarily removed at this stage.

Ensure you really moved away all config file then just delete the whole node directory:
rm -rf /etc/pve/nodes/NAME/

Please, triple check you passed the correct path! Nothing worse than deleting production configurations on a Friday ;)
