SOLVED - 3-node cluster, node failed

Hi there,

I have a 3-node NUC10 cluster, I've had a hardware failure on the first node, and my plan is to replace it. All CT and VMs have been moved onto the other nodes using backups. But I do not have a backup of the failed Proxmox node itself. My thinking was to just re-install Proxmox on this node (replacing the failed hardware), and then re-join it to the cluster. But I have read about potential issues if I try to re-join a node to a cluster with the same name.

What would you recommend?
