Problem using NTDSUTIL connections command

I am trying to remove old metadata for an old dc that was never properly removed from the domain.  I get into NTDSUTIL and get to the "connections" prompt. The instructions from the MS KB article tell me to "type set creds DomainNameUserNamePassword" I am a little confused at that part. Lets say my domain name is CONFUSED and ADMINISTRATOR is my username and my password is DAZED. How exactly should I type it?

I also like this article http://msmvps.com/blogs/ad/archive/2008/12/17/how-to-remove-a-failed-or-offline-dc.aspx

that KB 216498 is not great

...this gets so much easier in 2008 and 2008 R2 when you can delete the dead DC in ADUC (that cleans the metadata)

Thanks
