Remove Hyper-V node from dead Hyper-V Cluster

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.
