we recently had to rebuild one of our servers which was a domain controller and unfortunately didnt have chance to demote it first so the good thing is it will not come back to domain in the future accidentally to cause any conflict since i changed name of server to a totally different name.  My concern is how do i remove it so it does not cause replication problems with other domain controllers which shows it in list of domain controllers available for replication in active directory.  Will active directory simply know after a while that it is no longer present in the domain and will just remove it from list eventually?  thanks.
