NTDS KCC EventID 1265

We used to have only one server running AD (Win2K) which was also my file and print server and exchange server, but the motherboard failed.  We migrated the AD and file/print server to a new machine (PDC).  We migrated exchange and backup AD (BDC) to another machine.  The PDC failed again so I promoted the BDC to PDC.   We recreated file/print server but did not put AD on that machine.  I am having issues with the new PDC.  It is registering errors in the event log every 15  minutes and the exchange is becoming painfully slow.  
EventID:  1265
The attempt to establish a replication link with parameters
 Partition: CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=communityblood,DC=org
 Source DSA DN: CN=NTDS Settings,CN=LUCY,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=communityblood,DC=org
 Source DSA Address:
 Inter-site Transport (if any):
 failed with the following status:
 There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.
 The record data is the status code.  This operation will be retried.

What do I need to remove on my PDC so that it stops going out and trying to replicate to LUCY (my old domain controller)?  I am hoping this will improve my performance issues.

Please help!!

    I read through all of those and they seem as clear as mud.  I just need to pull Lucy out of the replication mix.  She wants nothing to do with Active directory.

    You should perform a metadata cleanup per KB 216498:
    "How to remove data in Active Directory after an unsuccessful domain controller demotion"

    Be sure to remove the old server from AD Sites and Services.

    Hope this helps!
