Hello:

I have my main DC up and running for the Active Directory just fine.  I also have a domain controller that died (no longer bootable).  This was strictly a backup DC that died, and I would like to remove it from my Active Directory tree.  It did not perform any of the five Flexible Single Master Operations (FSMO) roles for the domain.  Is deleting it from AD as simple as deleting the server from AD Sites and Servies and deleting the server from AD Users and Computers?  Do I need to worry about anything else?

I have another computer I will turn into a Domain Controller ready, but I wanted to do a bit of housekeeping and get rid of the old  one first.  Thanks for the help.
