Goal

PCA 2.3.2 added a new Deprovisioning command.

See:
    Oracle® Private Cloud Appliance Administrator's Guide for Release 2.3
        8.19 Deprovisioning and Replacing a Compute Node

If you followed that process for any reason, and now find the node will not provision, an additional step may have been missed.
