You need to remove the other node from the schema before you can delete the table:

   (one@REDACTED)8> mnesia:create_table(t, [{disc_copies, [one@REDACTED, other@REDACTED]}]).
   (one@REDACTED)9> rpc:call(other@REDACTED, mnesia, stop, []). 
   (one@REDACTED)10> mnesia:delete_table(t).
   {aborted,{not_active,"All replicas on diskfull nodes are not active yet",
   (one@REDACTED)11> mnesia:del_table_copy(schema, other@REDACTED).
   (one@REDACTED)12> mnesia:delete_table(t).
