Issues after removing SMS 2003 Management point

Hi All.  We have a child site, Site C which acts as a proxy-MP and a DP. It also serves as a CAP /Site Server/Component Server.   We must remove the MP role and I just did this on the central site console. We will then re-assign all of site C's clients to the parent site, Sit B by adding the Site C subnet to the Site B's boundaries.   The site C DP must remain for SMS clients at site C.    Is it that simple?  I checked on the Site C IIS server and it removed all SMS roles for the site.  

Do I need to do anything else to finish this? Any other cleanup?  On the central site console I am getting errors in component manager for site C:

Error 4192:  Systems Management Server cannot update the already existing object "cn=SMS-MP-SiteC-SMSC01" in Active Directory.

Possible cause: This site's SMS Service account or the site server's machine account may not have full control rights for the "System Management" container in Active Directory
Solution: Give the site's SMS Service account full control rights to the "System Management" container, and all child objects in Active Directory.

and a few minutes later:

Error 4195: Systems Management Server cannot delete the object "cn=SMS-MP-SiteC-SMSC01" in Active Directory.

Do I need to manually delete AD objects in the 'System Management' container?  Any suggestions?
