dear EE's

is there any way to clear old cluster paramenters and configuration from my infra structure.?

once after i created a new cluster, then simply tried to check with "connect to cluster" option which shows my old clusters which i destroyed before, or some others i just simply used for test purposes..

please guide me to clear all the old orphaned clusters and its configurations..

Thank you

Can you provide a screenshot of what you're seeing? I have a number of clusters on my network, but when I drop down the selection box under "Manage a cluster", I only see the local cluster in the list (or any others I've managed from that particular server). All of my clusters are still intact, but it does show clusters I've previously managed, even if I'm not longer connected to them.

Are you asking if you can clear this "cluster management history", for lack of a better term?

If you just want to remove it from AD, you can delete the relevant objects. AD Computer account, DNS, or something else?

If you're looking to remove it from the "Manage a cluster" dropdown in cluster manager, I'm honestly not able to find where that list is kept. It's not in the registry (as far as I can tell), so I'm at a bit of a loss for where else to check.

That would remove them from AD, but it wouldn't remove them from the "Manage a cluster" recent drop-down. It should accomplish what you need, though, and they won't show up in any AD searches anymore.
