Deleting Ntfrs folders

Can the Ntfrs be removed from a demoted DC before promoting it again?  Also, are there any other folders/files that should be removed from the machine before attempting the promotion again.

Yes you can remove them, was this a clean demotion using dcpromo?   what you really want to make sure is that the machine no longer exists in AD as a DC

If you did a clean promotion or metadata cleanup you should be ok.

Thanks

It was a clean demotion.  The only remnants of the machine is in DNS as a NS and A record. Can old NS records of machines that don't exist be removed?

Yes you can remove those old records and delete the box in sites and services (I'm guessing it is still there too)

Thanks

I would run a dcdiag on the functioning DC to check for any errors before proceeding with the promotion
