I have recently replaced a domain controller on my network.  The motherboard died in it before I could demote it.  That DC is still in the active directory and needs to be deleted.  Can anyone provide a little help.  BTW, it's not as simple as deleting it from the Domain Controllers Group.

The following seemed to have worked for a similar situation, you may try this.

Open ADSiedit and go to the domain conrollers container, right click the bdc
and click properties choose the useraccountcontrol attribute and change it
to 4096 and seect ok.  Open AD users and computers and delete it.


The above solution was picked from a newsgroup posting.
