You need to remove the instances of failed Dc from AD database and DNS  by running metadatcleanup.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498

Note:If the failed DC is fsmo role holder server you need to sieze the roles on other server followed by metadatacleanup.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/255504
Also check the client PC DNS setting should not point to failed DC.

Removed the AD from the  DC04 by dcpromo /forceremoval and did the metadata cleanup from other DC ,

Now I will retry to install the AD on the same DC04. and see the result. instead of scraching and rejoining the AD.

wait and watch

Hi

reinstalling AD on that server also does not give the sysvol & netlogon share ,

finally planed to reinstall the server with diffesrent name and in same VLAN , ofcourse after metadata cleanup.


Bye I am closing this question
