I am getting an error in the Windows event viewer telling me that I have not replicated my DC's and have gone past the Tombstone lifetime.  It suggests that I run repadmin /removelingeringobjects  to get rid of the old DC.  When I run repadmin /showreps  it verified that my old DC called VFEAPPS hasnt replicated in over 7000 attempts.  How do I use repadmin /removelingeringobjects to get rid of my old server called VFEAPPS?

Assuming that VEAPS no longer exists, may I recommend another utility called the NTDSUTIL that does clean up tombstoned objects from AD:

http://www.petri.co.il/delete_failed_dcs_from_ad.htm

That link above tells you how to rid of SRV and HOST A records as well as AD objects left over from a DC that was improperly demoted.

This link explains phantoms, tombstones, the active directory infrastructure and the four stages of a delted GUI SID.
