Removing Dead DNS

I have a dead DNS server on a windows 2003 server which I need to remove since my other DNS server looks for that server in order to update and creates Event logs since it cannot locate.

That's okay, you're only expecting to see the domain at that point. It has to go through quite a few steps before it goes as far as selecting the server.

If you continue on past there through site selection does it fail to list the server when you do "list servers in site"?

A Dead Secondary DNS Server? Or do you have AD hanging around?

"Note: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 eliminates the need for the above step."
