Hi guys !
Just wanted to know if the node gets inactive in the cluster is there a way it gets removed by itself (after 5min’s) .

Hi @sai,

Are you asking if you shut down a node, will it be automatically decommissioned? The answer to that is no, you have to take the additional step and decommission it while the node is running and connected to the cluster. Docs on this process are available here.
