Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:

When removing a host from a stretched cluster, the secondary host removal fails. Resulting in an imbalanced cluster.

Stretch cluster hosts are removed in pairs to maintain cluster balance.
If one of the host removals within a pair fails, a retry attempt will not be available until the failed host task is remediated.

Contact VMC on AWS Support for assistance
