I found the accounts
NtFrs-88f5d2bd-b646-11d2-a6d3-00c04fc9b232/computername.mydomain.com
NtFrs-88f5d2bd-b646-11d2-a6d3-00c04fc9b232/computername.childdomain.mydomain.com
AD still sees remcnair and it is not online. I tried setspn -D NtFrs-88f5d2bd-b646-11d2-a6d3-00c04fc9b232/computername.mydomain.com
This did not work. Said that account could not be found. Does anyone know how to remove the spn?

Thank you so much for the link. It has helped out in more ways than one. I wanted to try something but run it by you. De-promoting the domain that is online and Promoting, shouldn't that resolve it as long as the other domain is no longer in the forest?
