Domain membership test . . . . . . : Failed
    [WARNING] Ths system volume has not been completely replicated to the local

You can do a dcpromo /foreceremoval. Once you have done this do a metadata cleanup on AD. The quickest way is to do this.

You can also try to get the server working by using the burflag method.
