Remove Failed Secondary 2008 Domain Controller from 2008 Domain

I currently have a 2008 domain with 1 exchange server all running on VMware.  I added a 2nd 2008 Server and all was well.  For some reason the 2nd 2008 server Vmware machine just completely died.  Not sure why but no big deal.

How do I completely remove the now gone 2nd domain controller from AD?  I've found all kinds of articles for doing so on Windows 2003 server but would like more info on how to do this correctly on  2008 Server.

I just want to reinstall the dead domain controller.

Thanks

Thanks for the link.  Don't know how I missed that.  Giving it a try now.

The link above assumes that you have access to the domain controller that needs to be removed.  This process is obviously straight forward.  Remember, the box I need to remove is completely dead, gone not longer accessible.   AD thinks it just cannot be reached.  

I need to know how to remove the 2nd box from AD without logging into the machine.

Thanks

Thanks, guess I need to work on my search abilities.  Anyway, it worked perfectly.  This is always a good thing to know and understand.
