Windows 2012r2 remove server from Server Manager List

Windows 2012r2. SuperMicro Cluster in a Box. Failover Cluster Management.

Previously rsync and NFS roles/services were on this cluster which was not in use. Removed the roles/services/applications. - Attempted to use rsync to replicate to linux devices and VMWare -long story)

Within Server Manager, I am attempting the remove "rsync" server which was not part of the FCM. Cannot remove "rsync" server from server manager without removing the other servers within the server manager list (Failover Cluster servers/roles.)

Server manager refresh fails due "rsync" server cannot be resolved (target name resolution error). Screenshot of errors attached.

"rsync" server is an object within Active Directory but does not actually exist.  Within cluster manager, it "was" a role of the cluster which I have removed.

Please advise how I can remove this server from the server list without blowing away the cluster itself.

What happens when you attempt the following :

To resolve go into server manager. Go to all servers, find the offending server, right click and delete it. You will need to close out of server manager and go back in (or reboot) after that no more red flag.

@ITguy565,  

Thanks for the assist. Once it errored out, I then had the option to remove that server specifically. Also, at first, I was attempting remove it from Server Manager->File and Storage Services -> Servers, and the only option give was remove this and all remote servers from list.

Now there are no errors when "refreshing servers".

Thanks again.
