The cluster feels that the host is still a member

So, I have a host that I finally brought back to life (ESX v3.5 U5), and in the process removed it from the cluster.  Now when I try to add it back I get an error telling me it all ready exists.  Any idea how to completely remove it so I can add it back?

Thanks

Have you tried just rebooting?  Maybe manually reinstalling the vCenter agent (there are KB articles for this).  Also it may be easier to rebuild the host.

If you have more then one vCenter server you may be able to trick it by registering it with another vCenter server, which should unregister it on the other vCenter server.

Also your vCenter logs may have more information in it.

can you ensure that in the vcenter view the host does not appear anymore? and also a reboot of vcenter. it should resolve your issue.
