[SOLVED] Unable to remove node from cluster


Oct 12, 2020
Hi guys.

I have a dead PVE in my cluster, and I can't delete the node since it's not shown in pvecm nodes, but it show in the GUI and also in pvecm status. His name was PROXMOX13S and it's ID was 4:

Node/IP: 4 is not a known host of the cluster.

I don't want to mess with corosync.conf file before getting advice from you.

Thank you.
