I have a test BO XI 3.0 test environment in which I've got 3 servers in a cluster. Each server has all the same services currently and so all 3 are also CMSes.
Now I want to remove from of the servers from the cluster. How do I remove the node entirely? I see how to delete the services/servers in the node but then there's just an empty node listed in the CMC and I see no way of removing that node.
That's right Denis...
On the CCM in windows, stop the SIA, then click on the delete button in the CCM toolbar. In Unix, there're actually a removenode.sh script in your install directory that will remove the SIA and automatically update your ccm.config file.

Something happened with the entire server. I can't boot up to it at all. It's a Windows 2003 server and it no longer boots so I can't login to do anything with.
Yet, this was a node in a cluster. So I have no way of removing the SIA agent.
So now I need to build a new system and the node will be called something else.
When I have no way of removing the SIA agent of the failed server, how do I remove that node from the cluster?
I've been able to remove the servers from the cluster node via the CMC but since the physical server on which the SIA runs is dead (windows doesn't even boot on it anymore) I can't get to it to delete the SIA agent. So in CMC is always now shows an empty Node and I don't see any way to remove it.
Regarding your case, I tried Will's method, It does work well.
Just recreate the SIA(with the same name and configuration in your dead node) in the live node's ccm.
remember to CHECK the recreate SIA option in the first wizard screen.
And then delete it in the live node's ccm.
Double check that it is removed in the live cmc servers->nodes page
I have a situation very similar to this where a BIAR file was restored to a development system and the end result was we have two nodes in the cluster now that do not exist in this cluster.
I would like to remove these two nodes, and have tried the Adopt a Node feature, which is pretty much the method mentioned here, but I cannot get the SIA for the node to delete to create. Do I have to delete all of the servers from the node before I try to create the SIA for this node?
SAP Note 1406297 describes how to do this in the registry.
0001218472 How to change the default CMS name on the logon page for the InfoView or CMC
0001406297 How CMS cluster works when several servers are part of the cluster on Windows platform using Tomcat?
I also included two other notes of interest. Hope they help.
I read the note, and this note seems to explain how to change the name of a cluster's CMS. I have the following,
Cluster with master and node - CMS name is correct, BIAR file that was restored included server groups from differrent environemnt so I have 4 nodes listed in the CMC when actually only two nodes are part of this cluster.
I would like to remove the two nodes that were inadvertantly added by the import of the BIAR file.
I am new to this forum.
My case is different. I Uninstalled Business Objects R3.1 App from the server (clustered) before deleting the SIA.
Now, I still see the server and the node in CMC -> Servers.
Will deleting the servers from CMC will remove the node? Or is there a cleaner way to remove the node.
