Delete a tree from a forest, or recreate the first dc
Posted on 2003-02-27
I have a forest that has 2 domain trees. I demoted and took the only DC in one of the domain trees off line, and went about my way thinking that everything was good.
Now I want to recreate the domain tree, and I have found that the old domain is still listed in the AD. I want to recreate this domain tree but cannot because AD still thinks it's there, so if I try to create a new domain tree in my forest it gripes because the name i intend on using is currently in the AD.
How do i either get rid of the entry in AD or force it to allow me to add this machine.
Any help would be appreciated
