as you know my dc went down, the other problem is that it was my global catalog box.

lucky for me, i have two dc's running ad, now that the gloabl catalog is down i need to make my 2nd dc the gobal catalog and manually remove the failed dc out of AD.

I have reinstalled server 2003 on the failed dc, i now need to remove the old dc out off AD before i can promo it back.

On my 2nd dc not the one that failed, how can i remove the failed dc out of ad and make the 2nd dc the only dc on the lan?

PLEASE HELP. ONCE I HAVE DONE THIS I WILL THEN PREPARE THE FAILED DC TO BECOME THE GLOBAL CATALOG, AFTER THAT I WILL DEMOTE THE 2ND DC OFF THE LAN AND PROMO TO THE NEW DOMAIN AGAIN.

The link below should help. Use the ndsutil command line tool to remove the entries from your AD.
