[SOLVED] 2-node cluster - possible to remove QDevice and add it again?

Jul 26, 2021
Hi folks,

I made a mistake during the setup of a 2-node cluster. I forgot to install a package on the 3rd voting node, so QDevice is not working properly. Is it possible to remove a QDevice and add it again, to make sure the config will be written new to the nodes and the QDevice?

Thanks & Best Regards
I've found the solution by myself, reading the Proxmox Documentation for clusters. Sometimes it's better to read before asking... :) It's simple as usual with the Proxmox stuff.

A QDevice can be removed at any time with the command: pvecm qdevice remove

And it can be reinstaled with: pvecm qdevice setup <QDEVICE-IP>
