Make sure all FSMO roles where changed over successful.  You can use "Netdom query fsmo" from the command prompt and to check this.

Other than that, check and make sure your DNS is resolving correctly and that's it.

You can also run dcdiag to make sure your DNS and AD is operational
dcdiag /test:dns /v /e /f:dnstest.txt
and also run dcdiag /c

Make sure that the new DC is also a global catalog server.
That DC your demoted/removed needs to also be deleted from sites and services.  You have to do that manually as it is not done as part of the demotion process.
How many DCs do you now have in your domain (at least 2 I hope)
Thanks

How long has it been since you stood it up?   If you have a 13509 soon after that you are ok if you don't then start here

Good so that is what you want to see in there.  If you didn't have the 13509 then you would have to dig some more.
 Thanks
