You now only have one domain controller, but once had two.  Was the DC which isn't now running removed cleanly, or did it crash and disappear forever?  Where there any FSMOs on the missing DC?  (If you run 'netdom query fsmo' from a machine in the domain, does the missing DC show up?)  Does the missing DC still appear in the Domain Controllers OU in ADUC? etc

Yes the DC was removed cleanly it also had Exchange server on it so I followed the steps for First and last Exchange, then I uninstalled DNS, demoted the server, took it out of the domain then shut it off.
I ran netdom query fsmo from my domain controller and this is what I got
C:\>netdom query fsmo
Schema owner               DC-1.abc.ad

Domain role owner        DC-1.abc.ad

PDC role                        DC-1.abc.ad

RID pool manager          DC-1.abc.ad

Infrastructure owner      DC-1.abc.ad

The command completed successfully.
DC-1 is the name of my domain controller and abc.ad is the name of my domain
I don’t see the name of the old server, also under AD users and computers I only see one server under domain controllers I only see one server.
