Hi,
No, the Child Domain is not active and not available. When I login Domain, I stil can see the ChildDomain option, I want to totally remove the Child Domain from my Main Domain Controller.
Can I just follow this guide http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q230306 ??
Please advise.

Hi,
Please ignore above error message, my last error message as below:

DsRemoveDsDomainW error 0x2162(The requested domain could not be deleted because
 there exist domain controllers that still host this domain.)

I still not able to remove the child domain. Do you know what happend?

it means exactly what it says. you still have DC's that host that domain....if you are 100% certain you dont, then you will need to cleanup with a metadata cleanup
