Trying to remove a replication relationship from a node fails like this

ANR3443W When the REMOVE REPLNODE command was run, one or more nodes (KOPAL-TEST) were skipped because they are not configured to replicate data to the specified server SM287.
ANR3445I If a node has no replication associations with any servers, you must specify an empty string (server="") for the SERVER parameter for the REMOVE REPLNODE command to reset a node's replication state. If the node has a replication association with one or more 
servers, you must specify a valid target replication server name.
ANR1632E REMOVE REPLNODE: Command failed. Replication state information for the specified nodes could not be removed.


  • remove replicationnode with no server, using just two quote marks:
    REMove REPLNode <nodename> REPLServer=''
