I have a site, say SITEA, in AD Sites and Services that shows NTDS settings that are set to replicate with 3 different DCs, 2 in SITEB, and 1 in SITEC.  I want to remove one of the replication partners because it is from a site I don't need it to replicate with.

If I right click on the replication partner and choose Delete it says "Are you sure you want to delete this object", which scares me a little because I've never been faced with this situation before.

So, what is the correct way to remove a replication partner so that the DC in SITEA doesn't try to replicate with the DC in SITEC?

Please be 100% right if you answer cause this DC is in China and I don't feel like flying for 14 hours straight to fix whatever happens I still need to be able to get to this DC. :)
