Win2000 AD Repl Failure

When running dcdiag on a Win2k DC I receive the following output error:

   Testing server: Default-First-Site-Name\SERVER1
      Starting test: Replications
         [Replications Check,SERVER1] A recent replication attempt failed:

            From SERVER6 to SERVER1
            Naming Context: CN=Schema,CN=Configuration,DC=DomainName
            The replication generated an error (8524):
            The DSA operation is unable to proceed because of a DNS lookup failure.
            The failure occurred at 2011-02-28 10:51.59.

Server6 no longer exists on the network.  How do I remove Server6 from the repl pool?

You need to clean out metadata from this DC, if it was not demoted, but just turned off.

Exactly what I needed to exercise the ghosts of DC's past.  Thanks.
