I have a secondary DC that crashed and I have reinstalled W2K3 and need to rejoin it to the Domain.  The problem is that this DC is already listed under the DC's in Active Directory.  What is the best way to remove the DC from active directory so I can re-join it to the domain and then run dcpromo?
