Reading documetation Microsoft and some foruns at Windows 2008 to remove Domain controller like my only delete on Active Directory users and Computers  the Domain controller broken.

What you read was correct, metadata cleanup is much easier with Windows 2008    http://msmvps.com/blogs/mweber/archive/2010/05/16/active-directory-metadata-cleanup.aspx

You will want to try and get a second DC up if you can.   Just think if this same thing happened and you only had one DC....much bigger issues there.

Thanks

Mike

Mike's link should work but I still like to check the old way to make sure all objects are gone.
