After running the first command (cluster node /force) that removes all of
the cluster settings from this node. If this is the last node in the
cluster, your cluster has just been totally wiped out.

The error you're getting in the second command is an RPC error which
basically means that this node cannot communicate with the cluster. For some
reason, the cluster was already on its way down...the evict command
shouldn't have had anything to do with the "crashing" of your cluster. In a
prior post, you were mentioning MNS, so it's possible that you lost the
majority when you issued the cluster node /force command.

Hope this makes sense.
