Unable to remove a server from AD Sites and Services

Hello,

We upgraded from NT 4.0 server to Windows 2003. due to the inability of windows 2003 to talk to NT, we used a intermediary windows 2000 server box to get the users from the NT box (installed NT4.0 server as BDC, then upgraded to PDC, then installed Windows 2000 server on it)

Somehow, after the installation was completed, the intermediary box, TRANSFER, was removed from everything but AD sites and services. Now I am unable to remove it as windows 2003 will not allow it. I am also getting replication errors in the event logs as in the NTDS settings for the 2003 server, it's replication partner is TRANSFER. TRANSFER is now non-existant. Any suggestions on how to remove TRANSFER for good.

Thanks.
