I had to reformat the hard drive of a workstation node and forgot to remove it from the head node before doing this. All of the powershell commands I try fail with errors such as cannot take a workstation offline with an automatic availability policy
(or something similar). Is there some way to delete a no longer existing node forcibly (manually) from a head node?
After endless trial and error and copious amounts of profanity I figured out how to do this. Create a second Workstation template with startup policy set to manual. Assign the new template to the workstation node. Now take that node offline,
then delete it.
