Scaling down a cluster (removeing node)


New Member

Hi, I would like to scale my cluster from 4 to 3 nodes ->

```pvecm delnode node4```
worked, additionally I removed the ```/etc/pve/nodes/node4``` dir - it looks like cluster is a healthy 3 node one, but GUI still shows a fourth node.

Any hints on what I have missed?
