Hi :

My Openstack Cluster have 16 compute nodes and I need to scale down the size to use the hardware for other purpose so I need to remove some compute node servers. Did anyone know how to remove a Compute Node from Juno release?

Regards Dickson

If you want the service records to be removed from the controller after you have done the migration, you can use nova service-delete <id> on the controller host, where <id> can be found from nova service-list.

I first use nova-manage service disable --host hostname --service nova-compute. Then nova service-delete <id>. This will solve my problem. Thanks.

You migrate its instances to different hosts, then just shut it down and remove it. OpenStack will cope with the loss.

Bernd, the key is how long for controller to automatically delete that shut-down service. I've waited for 10 mins, so ,....give up , issue the command above instead.
