I want know how to delete a Windows Server Failover Cluster. My case is a bit special.

I encountered some problems while creating a failover cluster, and I stopped the cluster services then I did "evict nodes", then "destroy cluster".

Then the cluster disappears and now I can no longer recreate a cluster because it tells me that the servers are in a cluster. In this case how to delete a cluster which is not visible in server manager?

It's for SQL Server high availability.

  • Can you please add the error message you are getting, in the question – Shanky Mar 6 '20 at 7:55
  • @Shanky when i try to create the cluster , i have this error message when i select the servers "The computer 'node01.corp.gh.mg' is joined to a cluster" . – Lucas Rasolofoniaina Mar 6 '20 at 7:59

    This MSDN thread should help you. Basically you would have to remove things manually using PS – Shanky Mar 6 '20 at 8:48
  • @Shanky thank you guy , it works but now the problem is that validating the cluster take too much time , it's blocked on "List Software Updates", i don't know what is the real problem – Lucas Rasolofoniaina Mar 6 '20 at 11:56

    And if you somehow get this cleaned up, you intend to continue with building a failover cluster with these OS instances? I would start over with clean installs, and preferably a later version of Windows Server. – David Browne - Microsoft Mar 6 '20 at 16:32
