Evict node from hyper-v 2008 R2 cluster

Hello,

I am curious if any of you have seen this scenario before.

We had a cluster of two nodes. Hyperv1 and Hyperv2. Both 2008 R2. They all share a witness disk and a CSV volume.

Then we install two new nodes 3 and 4 into the cluster, 2008 R2. We move over VMs to Hyperv 3 and 4. We then evict Hyperv2.

Now we would like to evict Hyperv1 and make 3 and 4 the only two. However when pausing or shutting down/restarting 1 the CSV goes down. It seems its somehow master/owner of the cluster and the cluster IP, Can this and how be moved over?

What would happen if we do a evict, will the cluster IP and CSV ownership be moved over or is that risky?

Appreciate any help,
Josef

You need to select node 3 and 4 possible owners for all resources on Hyper-V cluster.
Resources include, cluster name resource, quorum disk and so on.
Once that done, you can failover all resources \ VMs on node 1 to else node (3 or 4) and then you could evict node 1 hopefully safely

Note that when you have even nodes in cluster, Witness\Quorum will remain on shared disk and when there are odd cluster nodes, quorum will be changed to majority node sets.
The Majority Node Set quorum consisted of a file share that resided on the system drive on each cluster node
