"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If a computer no longer exists, the role must be seized. To seize a role, use the Ntdsutil.exe utility.

And following the steps.  They actually have you issue the seize command.  You do not need to connect to the old server.  That's the point of the seize.
