[erlang-questions] Can not delete a dead node

In order to remove node b@REDACTED from the Mnesia schema you must:

1 stop Mnesia on node b@REDACTED
2 run mnesia:del_table_copy(schema, b@REDACTED) on node a@REDACTED
3 never try to start Mnesia on node b@REDACTED again

If that does not work, you need to investigate how Mnesia looks at
these tables. Use mnesia:info(), mnesia:schema(schema) and
mnesia:schema(mytable) to get more info about the Mnesia
