Orphaned sub-domain with a crashed and dead DC
Posted on 2006-10-20
THIS DOMAIN DOES NOT REALLY EXIST - USING THE DOMAIN NAMES FOR AN EXAMPLE
We have a domain imaginary.com on which we created a sub-domain really.imaginary.com. On the sub-domain we created a Domain Controller named CLAUDETTE. Several days after adding CLAUDETTE to the sub-domain and promoting her to a global DC she crashed and burned.
What we would like to do at this point is remove any and all references to CLAUDETTE and the sub-domain really.imaginary.com
Does anyone know how I would go about this?
I take it that I would have to go into AD using a tool/utility to manually remove the entries but do not know which tools to use or where to look in AD.
