Add rebuild cluster node back to the Windows cluster

Last Modified: 2012-08-20
We had a problem with one of servers in our 2 node Windows 2008 R2 Core cluster Hyper-V setup.
The cluster runs on a iSCSI SAN. The node ended up not being able to start the cluster service and appears as down in the cluster.

As the node was having other issues we have done a fresh install and rebuild of the server.
The server is configured the same with same name and IP address.
How do I add it back into the cluster, the node is still showing in the cluster manager as down.
Do I evict and re-add. First time we have had to do this so want to know correct procedure as we have all our VMs running on one node at the moment.

Thanks for your help
