Demotion of a crashed DC

Dear all,

In my domain I have 2 DCs, ServerDC1 and Server DC2.

ServerDC2 crashed and is not booting up and we need to demotion it completely using ServerDC1. How can I do this?

Then delete the object of DC2 from Active Directory and run AD meta data cleanup. Follow below link:
