How do I totally delete existing cluster?

  1. How do I totally delete existing cluster?

    Hi all,

    I had a very simple cluster consisting of one Windows 2003 database
    server with an attached storage device and one Windows 2003 Domain
    controller. For some reason, Cluster Manager can no longer reach the
    cluster. If I try to connect, it can't find it. If I try to create a
    new one, it fails. This isn't that big of a deal since this is just a
    test environment.

    I would like to completely destroy this existing cluster and create a
    new one. Basically just start over but without reinstalling the OS.

    Is this possible? If so, can you point me to some info on how to do so?

    Thanks.

    cluster node /forcecleanup

    Though I really like the nuke and pave method, much cleaner!

    Cheers,
