I had my 2nd Domain controller just totally die last night. I need to rebuild it, but first I need to have it removed from my AD.  How do I cleanly remove it?

use adsitedit remove all records for the dc then force a replication to any other dc's on the network.  If any fsmo roles lived on that server you will need to seize them then transfer.

Personally, I follow Dan Petri's instructions.  I think they are clearer than Microsoft's.
