Hey Experts, I ran the command "repadmin /ISTG on the replicating DC at the HQ site
See below, I get 4 site displaying 4 DC that were deleted at least a few years a go, those DC don't exist anymore.
6919ElmwoodSWSCDC1\0ADEL:8b04b4da-ed4c-4406-97c5-e53d6df9f663

                 26S40thS40DC1\0ADEL:03fe0ad8-7629-4420-96e3-5194403836c0
                137S58thS58THDC1\0ADEL:26825cab-a7fb-477b-bf41-d1d72597cf40
These sites still exist and their current DC names are different, for example 6916Elmwood is EADC1
Is there a way I can removed them from the domain?
TIA guys

C:\>repadmin /istg hqdc2 /verbose

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
