I had previously set up my domain  to have trust with another forest.  That other forest no longer exists . I removed the trust, but when my clients go to login, they still have the option of logging in the other domain.

Also, I had a child domain I made. I killed that machine too. But it is still showing up under "SITES AND SERVICES."  It wont let me delete it.

Help! What do I have to do to get rid of the estranged forest and child domain ?
Thanks

Ok, that second link worked great to clean up the external trust I made.

However, when I tried to remove the child domain I used to have, it said
"The requested domain could not be deleted because their exist domain controllers that still host this domain"

thanks!

You will have to dcpromo to demote all domain controllers in the child domain to completely remove it.

Actually, the child domain has been reformatted. Doesnt exist anymore :)
That is a great "how to" article by the way. I saved it.

Any other ideas?
Thanks

I just tried to remove an old site last week and got a simular error.  Once you click on the site, the pane to the left will show a "server" object and I think two other objects.  Delete the stale DC first, then delete the objects for the stale site, then remove the site.  Once all the DCs replicate, and the child domain's DNS entries are deleted, the clients should not see it anymore when they logon.  They may have to reboot for this to take effect.  I think they will then have to still log on, then log off again.

Dissolved, I hope this helps you to get this done tonight.  Unfortunately, I have to sign off for the night and I will not be back until tomorrow night.  If this does not fix it, I'm sure Debsy99 will jump in later this morning.

I used ADSIEdit.msc and was able to remove the site this way.  The ex-child domain isnt showing up in sites. It's showing up in the Domains and Trusts snap in.   Still trying to figure out a way to delete it.

Well thanks for all of your help cfairley. I really do appreciate it.
