Yes, the pcs command is just a convenient shorthand for a series of
commands. You want to ensure pacemaker and corosync are stopped on the
node to be removed (in the general case, obviously already done in this
case), remove the node from corosync.conf and restart corosync on all
other nodes, then run "crm_node -R <nodename>" on any one active node.
