I am trying to remove a brick, from a server which is no longer part of the
gluster pool, but I keep running into errors for which I cannot find
answers on google.

[root at virt2 ~]# gluster volume remove-brick data replica 2
srv1:/gluster/data/brick1 start
volume remove-brick start: failed: Migration of data is not needed when
reducing replica count. Use the 'force' option

[root at virt2 ~]# gluster volume remove-brick data replica 2
srv1:/gluster/data/brick1 commit
Removing brick(s) can result in data loss. Do you want to Continue? (y/n) y
volume remove-brick commit: failed: Brick srv1:/gluster/data/brick1 is not
decommissioned. Use start or force option

The server virt1 is not part of the cluster anymore.
