Unable to delete master node


Dec 17, 2019
I'm creating a cluster between PMG, but I left the server name the same.

I get the message:

cluster join failed: 500 add node failed: ip address 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' is already used by existing node pmg2
I changed the name of the slave server, but I still get the error.

I tried to delete it on the master cluster.

$pmgcm status
NAME (CID) -------------- IPADDRESS ---- ROLE-STATE --------- UPTIME --- LOAD ---- MEM --- DISK
pmg2(1)              xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx     master A              00:02     0.15      62%      14%

$pmgcm delete 1
