Hello,

 If the RODC Does not exists in your domain anymore then you have to Perform Metadata Cleanup of RODC on your Primary domain controller.

Below is the MS KB which explains how to perfomr metadata cleanup.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498

Also once done make sure non of the RODC DNS records exists in your domain.

As these are RODC , Only Metadata clean up is sufficient, as there will be no FSMO , or any other roles will be installed on it.

Hope this information helps.

Regards,

_Prashant_

In AD 2008, you can delete computer account. This fullfils the same purpose as a metadata cleanup..

It's all GUI based in 2008 and 2008 R2.
