Issue

In a 4-node cluster, if a HA pair is removed physically or is a wipeout without performing a cluster unjoin operation, it leads to a scenario where unjoin with force option fails with the following error:

Cluster::*> cluster unjoin -node Cluster-node-3 -force

Warning: This command will forcibly unjoin node "Cluster-node-3" from the
         cluster. You must unjoin the failover partner as well. This will
         permanently remove from the cluster any volumes that remain on that
         node and any logical interfaces with that node as the home-node.
         Contact support for additional guidance.

Error: command failed: [Job 615] Job failed: This command requires that
       management services be online on at least 3 of the 4 eligible nodes,
       excluding "Cluster-node-3". Currently, there are only 2 healthy nodes
       after excluding "Cluster-node-3". Please repair the unhealthy nodes, and
       reissue the command.
