I think i made a mistake and ran "pvecm expected 1" on the wrong node when removing a node. now on all my nodes its showing "Standalone node - no cluster defined"

I have tried to restart the cluster service but has made no difference.

How do i fix this issue?
this is the pvecm status

Have you tried simply resetting the value to its default ("pvecm expected 3") on each node?

I would then reboot the nodes one-by-one (resetting the value after boot) to make sure no further split-brain situations will occur.
