You can remove a node from a zone cluster by halting the node, uninstalling it, and removing the node from the configuration. If you decide later to add the node back into the zone cluster, follow the instructions in Figure 14, Table 14, Task Map: Adding a Node to an Existing Global or Zone Cluster. Most of these steps are performed from the global-cluster node.
phys-schost# clzonecluster halt –n node zone-cluster-name
You can also use the clnode evacuate and shutdown commands within a zone cluster.
phys-schost# clresourcegroup remove-node -n zone-hostname -Z zone-cluster-name rg-name
If you use the procedure described in the Note in Step 2, the resource groups should be automatically removed so you might be able to skip this step.
phys-schost# clzonecluster uninstall –n node zone-cluster-name
If the zone cluster node you want to remove resides on a system that is inaccessible or unable to join the cluster, skip this step.
Use the following commands:
phys-schost# clzonecluster configure zone-cluster-name clzc:sczone> remove node physical-host=node clzc:sczone> exit
clzc:sczone> remove -F node physical-host=node
If you use this method to remove the last zone cluster node, you will be prompted to delete the zone cluster entirely. If you choose not to, the last node will not be removed. This deletion has the same effect as clzonecluster delete -F zone-cluster-name.
phys-schost# clzonecluster status
