Precautions to be taken while evicting a cluster node
We have a cluster with 5 nodes (OS is windows 2003 SP2), 2 of the nodes are at the DR site, we are using this cluster for sql 2005 clustering. The 2 nodes at the DR site do not have any groups/resources on them as of now.
Our company has decided to remove the DR site (it's going to go out of business by mid next year). As part of this, I am asked to permanently evict the 2 nodes from the cluster. I know we can do this by stopping the cluster services and evicting them. Can anyone please let me know If I need to take care of anything else so that it doesn't affect the other 3 cluster nodes? Thanks.
