I had a Domain Controller crash and needed for force a FSMO role change.  Now when running dcdiag on the new DC I receive a "KnowsofRoleHolders" error stating DC1 is the domain owner, but is deleted.   I have manually deleted all references to the DC accorfing to the following article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498 . Any ideas on how to correct this?

Thanks,

did you also seize or transfer the fsmo roles.
its ideally recomended to seize the fsmo roles if the role holder is down and there are no plans to bring it back online.
you could still seize the FSMO roles if the problem server has been removed using the metadat cleanup article.

once the roles are seized, make sure it completses a full replication cycle and then run a dcdiag and check again.
