Remove cluster services on a windows 2003 cluster manually

Postby guest » Tue Nov 25, 2008 12:10 pm

you would like to confirm whether there is any way to manually to remove cluster services on a Windows Server 2003 cluster, similar to the article in KB 257928.

Then please understand that the files for the Cluster service are
installed, by default, on computers that run either Windows Server 2003,
Enterprise Edition or Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition. In earlier
versions of Windows, this feature had been in the Add/Remove Programs tool.

You cannot remove the Cluster service, but you can return it to an
unconfigured state. To remove the cluster service from a failover node,
follow these steps:
======================================
1. Start Cluster Administrator (CluAdmin.exe).
2. Right-click the node, and then click Stop the Cluster service.

Note: Do not perform this step if this server is the last node in the
cluster.

3. Right-click the node, and then click Evict Node.

This step returns the cluster to its original unconfigured state. You can
re-add it later to the same or to a different cluster.

To remove the cluster service from the last node, follow these steps:
======================================
1. Start Cluster Administrator (CluAdmin.exe).
2. Right-click the node, and then click Evict Node.

Note: The cluster service must be running if the cluster was configured to
use the "Enable Kerberos authentication" option.

3. Delete the computer object (network name) from Active Directory, and
replicate for changes to take effect.

For more information, we can refer to the following KB articles:
