We had an active-passive cluster, but it was unnecessary. So we would like to re-use one of the hosts. Our server group has already evicted the passive host. I'd like to uninstall SQL Server 2008 R2 on it and re-install.

First thing I notice is that Technet says "To remove a node from an existing SQL Server failover cluster, you must run SQL Server Setup on the node that is to be removed from the SQL Server failover cluster instance."

[url=http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191545.aspx][/url]

That step was not taken.

When I start an uninstall on the evicted node, I notice that its Instance ID is MSSQL10_50.CLUSTERNAME.

Is there any harm that may come to the cluster if I proceed with the uninstall?

If you evicted the node from the cluster then flatten it totally and re deploy the OS would be the best recommendation
