i think i've gotten myself into some deep trouble.
when i got here (this company i work at)
there was this w2k sbs server set up.
i added an additional domain controller and thats when the mess started. Some stuff was badly configured and i only found out later (for example OWA didnt work properly, DHCP leases were set at 2 hours etc).
replication between the two domain controllers didnt go too well, and later on due to hardware failure the addiotional domain controller died.
since i was having more and more problems with the replication i decided to build up a new w2k server as member server instead of DC (it wouldnt even let me promote it as DC anymore).
since the computer wasnt properly removed from the domain it was still in AD sites and servers. and i cant get it removed from there.
the event logger is giving me massive errors, but the one that worries me the most now is this one
Error 8430(20ee) has occurred (Internal ID 20612ee).  Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for assistance.
what to do ? (dont tell me to call microsoft, cus thats what i'll do when i cant fix this by myself or with help from you guys).

Try rebooting in Directory Services Restore mode on the DC.

Press F8 when the starting windows status bar appears. Select Directory Services Restore mode.

Once windows boots, try Start, Run: ntdsutil

then type: semantic data analysis
then: go fixup

Make sure you run a system state backup before you do any work on this.

ok, worsed case scenario is that it all goes bad huh.
but how do i get the malicous domain controller removed from AD sites and servers? the name is just there but the computer field is empty.
i run indeed sp4, but this message is just from the past few days, and sp4 is already installed for like 3 months or so.
