This week in my Hyper-V, I had a strange error that was not easy to find a clear solution since all solutions that I find could not clean the node to reuse. So I will quickly explain how Remove Hyper-V node from dead Hyper-V Cluster.
One of my Hyper-V Cluster in the lab was corrupted and lost the Storage Cluster, so I destroyed(was a test lab) and created a new one with the 3 Hyper-V nodes.
When trying to add node number 3, I get, “The computer hyperv-node is joined to a cluster.” Meaning that this Hyper-V node already belongs to another Hyper-V Cluster.
Login to the Hyper-V Node and in PowerShell use the command, Get-Cluster but I get no results. Meaning that there is no Hyper-V Cluster configured in this Hyper-V.
So I need to clean any Cluster configurations on this Hyper-V or reinstall Hyper-V. The only commands that did the trick to clean any Cluster configuration leftovers were, Import-Module FailoverClusters and Clear-ClusterNode.
After this command, I was able to add again the Hyper-V to the new Hyper-V without any issues.
No issues after adding the Hyper-V to the Hyper-Cluster.
After the above steps the new Hyper-V Cluster is working with all nodes without any issues.
I hope this information was useful, and you quickly remove and clean and Remove Hyper-V node from dead Hyper-V Cluster.
