Child Domain Remains in Domains and Trusts after metadata Cleanup
Posted on 2011-02-25
Some time ago a SAN admin thought it would be okay to kill a lun b/c it was a test server. While it was a test domain, it was a child of the production. I know, but we don't have the funds to build a proper test environ. Anyway, I did a metadata cleanup, but today (several months later) the deleted DC reappeared in Sites and Service. It's domain reappeared in Trusts & Domains. I can't do another metadata b/c the domain the serve existed in is not available for selection. I was able to deleted the old server object from sites and service, but Domain and Trusts doesn't let me delete domains. How can I get rid of the domain and where should I look to be sure the DC is gone.
domain is 7 site 2003 functional level, all 2003 boxes/DCs.
