Hi,
I was wondering if someone could shed some light on the issue im having. Currrently have 1 cluster with 2 nodes. When i try to remove one of the clusters im getting this error
Code:
root@prometheus:~# pvecm delnode 192.168.3.28
400 Parameter verification failed.
node: invalid format - value does not look like a valid node name

pvecm delnode <node>
i checked the nodes and its by IP
Code:
root@prometheus:~# pvecm nodes

Membership information
----------------------
    Nodeid      Votes Name
         2          1 192.168.3.28
         1          1 192.168.3.121 (local)

Thank you
 
Hi,

do you call it on the other node?
I mean not the one you try to remove?
Because you must remove the node always on the cluster and not on the node you will remove.
Also, use the node name, not the IP.

Thanks for the reply. im currently calling it from the another node not the node im trying to remove. So i always need to call it from the hostname? im guessing to do that i would need to edit /etc/hosts and add each of the proxmox hosts their name and IP?
