Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed to enroll for one Domain Controller certificate from certificate authority oog on server.domain.local (0x800706ba).  The RPC server is unavailable.
  Another certificate authority will be contacted.
So I have deleted the domain controler a long time ago but the stupid domain controlers never forget. what are they elephants or something.
any way how do I pull it out of the domain.

How did you delete the DC. It sounds like you may need to do a metadatacleanup of the old DC.

Here is another article that has step by step instructions


What you will want to do is on the good DC open a command prmopt and type ntdsutil
then metadata cleanup
then connections
Then connect to server (THIS SHOULD BE THE NAME OF THE DC YOU ARE ON)
Type Q
Then follow the steps in the link. Post back if you have any problems. Be careful you do not delete the wrong server.

Do you know what \if you were using the CA for anything?
Do you have a backup of the old server, I am assuming not?

Take a look at this article starting at step 6. Depending on what you were using the CA for this could break things.
