Reclaim Nutanix licenses

Remove licenses or add-ons from the Prism Element or Prism Central cluster and refund available licenses that have not expired to your account (that is, reclaim all licenses). An unlicensed Nutanix NX Series cluster reverts to the default Starter license.

You must unlicense your cluster when you plan to destroy or remove node from a cluster.
First unlicense the cluster as described here, then destroy the cluster.
