Removing a node from a logical chassis cluster

If the no vcs logical-chassis enable rbridge-id <rbridge-id | all> default-config command is executed on a switch that is currently in logical chassis cluster mode, the switch boots in fabric cluster mode. The following is example:
no vcs logical-chassis enable rbridge-id 239 default-config
Once the node is converted to fabric cluster mode, the Rbridge goes into offline state from the original cluster. To remove the configuration of the node, you must enter the no vcs enable rbridge-id rbridge-id command, as shown in the following example:
no vcs enable rbridge-id 239

Once the node is removed, all configurations corresponding to that node are removed from the cluster configuration database. Similarly, the removed node does not retain any configurations corresponding to the other nodes in the cluster.

The following figure shows the cluster after node N5 has been removed. Nodes N1 through N4 remain in the cluster, and N5 is an island. There is no data path or management path connectivity between the two islands.
