ntdsutil syntax questions

I can sucessfully seized the schema role but now I need to remove a server and run cleanup.

I have a server named server2 that needs to be removed. The help shown at ntdsutil shows "remove selected server".

I'm assuming (stupidly) that since the help shows "seize schema master" and that's exactly what I used and it worked thatI should use the entry in the help file - "remove selected server" and then putting in the server name to remove it would work but it won't and always complains about syntax error.

Has anyone done this and can you provide the secret not listed syntax that will help me remove this old server and run a metadata cleanup as well. Thanks!
