Remove node from (new) Non-active Cluster


Apr 7, 2019

I have installed 2 Proxmox nodes where one host has already some VM's on it. My idea was to use them in a separate way but while reading I thought I might stay with separate nodes.

I have created a cluster on my node1 and did not add node2 to it yet, I got some message about some quorum 500 error and thought it might be better to keep them separate as my setup is not sharing storage as well.

Now I have a non-active cluster on node1 which I want to remove and I wonder if I can do this without losing my VM's.

On my node1 the following is the status:

# pvecm status
Cannot initialize CMAP service

Ideas are very welcome.

Thank you
