800xA v6 invalid node
I have a problem with invalid node.
First with the new workstation i add a client node, the result is good. Client node can add to server. But after Factory Acceptance Test and send the workstation to customer the problem come. The problem is client cannot connect to server. The 800xA indication always disable (red indication).
Second, after many hours waiting for the enable connection the connection is still disable. And I try to remove the client from server. After remove the client and i try to add again the client but the client status is always invalid.
I was tried to remove all 800xA software from client and install again from Node Preparation Tools untill finish to configure the client with SCC. And add the client again but the status still same (invalid).
The question is
1. Is only one way to fix this problem? Must be restore to clean windows or have an alternative ways to fix this problem?
Thank you for your kind attention.

In the problem you faced, you have to look for a solution without removing the node from system. Actually removing and readding is not a solution anymore like before( I mean 800xA 5.1).
Check status with RNRP tools. Is domain/workgroup relation OK after the move? New IP-addresses that need to be applied in RNRP Config?
Removing and re-adding has NEVER been an appropriate method to refresh relationship between a client and a server, not before 6.0, nor after. Trust me.
Attend E143 Troubleshooting 800xA Expert Workshop, preferably in Sweden where me and a colleague is developing/maintaining it - we will teach you more appropriate methods to resolve such problems.
Maintain disk images to be able to go back. Use SCC’s ”Replace Node” function when appropriate.
Removing a node in 6.0 using SCC>Configure System is somewhat irreversible.
