rpk redpanda admin brokers decommission

This command is not supported on macOS, Windows.

Decommission the given broker.

Decommissioning a broker removes it from the cluster.

A decommission request is sent to every broker in the cluster, only the cluster leader handles the request.

For safety on v22.x clusters, this command will not run if the requested broker is in maintenance mode. As of v23.x, Redpanda supports decommissioning a node that is currently in maintenance mode. If you are on a v22.x cluster and need to bypass the maintenance mode check (perhaps your cluster is unreachable), use the hidden --force flag.
