oh boy what a treat this was.  After 3 hrs or so on the phone with MS you need to change database entries on SCE.  Here is the link in case someone runs into this.   MS said the entry gets stuck and needs to be manually removed.

On the virtual machine, either evict the node by using the Cluster Administrator MMC or by running CLUSTER NODE (name) /EVICT from the command prompt.

Hmm.  Is the Cluster service still running on the node?  Try stopping the Cluster service first...

When you say you're trying to remove the Hyper-V host, what do you mean?  Remove it from the domain?  Remove Hyper-V as a service?
