The Virtual SAN host cannot be moved to the destination cluster: Virtual SAN cluster UUID mismatch

Today one of my client faced this issue in his environment when he was trying to move one vsan cluster nodes to another vsan cluster although he deleted the disk groups but without removing the host from cluster he deleted the cluster itself and then added the host in vcenter again then when he was trying to add those added esxi hosts in the another cluster then this message was reported by him "The Virtual SAN host cannot be moved to the destination cluster: Virtual SAN cluster UUID mismatch" Screenshot of this error is given below:-


Primary Checks:-
1. Verify in Storage Inventory View do you still have vsan datastore visibility of that deleted vsan cluster
2. If yes, Connect with the ESXi Shell and then execute this command to check whether host has still old cluster information:-
esxcli vsan cluster get
3. If yes then apply the solution given below

Solution:-
1. SSH to each esxi host those were the cluster member one by one
2. Execute this command to leave the vsan cluster
esxcli vsan cluster leave
 3. Now try to add these esxi hosts to another vsan cluster and it will work.
