    Received below error while uninstall sql instance in 2 node failover cluster.

    Error :The selected instance is clustered and cannot be removed as specified.To re remove the selected instance , select "Remove Node" on the Installation center or specify /Action=RemoveNode from the command-line.

    if i select 'Remove node' then the node will be removed from the failover cluster ?

    if you run the remove node action in the sql server setup the node is removed from the specified clustered instance of sql server, it is not removed from the windows cluster.
