I enherited a network with 11 2003 Standard DCs.  We have several facilities with a single AD at each one.  My predesessor had removed a couple of the domain controllers without taking them out of replication, so I am getting replication errors in the event log.  Replication is still being attempted with the servers that no longer exist.  What is the best way to tell the primary DC to stop attempting to replicate with servers that don't exist.

Thanks,

Javas
