Domain rename issue

I am in the process of doing a domain name rename.  All was going well until the final stage where it sync the new domain details to the other domain controllers.

At this point i noticed a very old dc that an admin didnt dcpromo, they unplugged and formated.

If i try and remove the server in adsiedit.msc its failing because i am in the middle of a domain rename. Is there anyway i can clear this domain rename remove then server and then start the rename again?
