  • Evicting a broken cluster node via command line.

    Posted on August 6th, 2009 ashinn No comments

    Like I’ve said before, I mostly have this blog for me. I often forget how to do stuff due to getting old.

    Ran into a situation where a Microsoft Cluster node ate itself, and I wasn’t able to evict it with the GUI Cluster Administrator. This second proceedure at this link fixed it up: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282227

    If you cannot start the Cluster service, or if you have trouble removing the node, you can manually unconfigure the Cluster service:

    1. Run the Cmd.exe program to open a command prompt.
    2. At the command prompt, type cluster node nodename /forcecleanup, and then press ENTER.
