I had a server running as a secondary DC and it died.  I'm not gonna replace it.  What is the best way to remove it completely from the network so I don't get NTDS replication errors?

ok thanks guys. quick question.  the server is not even connected.  can I still use DCPROMO to remove it? or is it something I must run from that computer? if not then I guess I can just use the more step-by-step solution that appears on petri.il.

ok I did the petri step by step and it worked. I only have one question.  on my remaining DC, in the event viewer I still have the File Replication Service.  Must I turn that off as well?
