I have already seen these sites.
My problem is .
I dont want to add this secondary child domain back.I totally want to remove the traces.
If i do the petri given method will that be fine.Is it enough to do it on one server Dc
I just followed all the seps but still in ADUC > Connect to Domain i can still see the domain name.And even when logging into any machine i can see the remove domain name

you should only have to do it on one DC....the changes will replicate but if you are having problems you can do it on other DC's as well
