Domain level: Windows 2000
Active domain controllers: DC1 and DC2

I added another Domain controller(DC3) to replace DC2 later. So I promoted DC3. Later DC3 hardware failed and died. I repaired DC3 and had to reinstalled Windows 2000 server on it.

Now I need to add DC3 again to the network from scratch.

Questions:

1-      How can I remove DC3 old records before adding it again?
2-      Could I promote it with a different name(DC4) and the remove DC3 records?

Please someone explain to me which tool I use to remove DC3 old record from Active Directory and the steps to follow

Thanks
