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.

                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
