This a supported asset? This is a community edition forum so if you have support on a 1k you probably want to be using official support.

A 3 node cluster is a bare min for quorum so it may be having issues completing the destroy. Why areyou trying to destroy the cluster? Are you planning to re-foundation the block?

So couldn't you just foundation the nodes to Hyper-V and not worry about destroying the cluster? You can't migrate the data it sounds like for what you are trying to do.

Just not sure why you will need to go through breaking quorum in this case?

I moved this to the Commercial product forums from the CE forums.


As  said, why not just foundation the box?
