We have had a domain controller / hub transport server die due to hardware failure. We have tried to remove this DC for AD by the use of NTDSUTIL and it just stays there when I try and delete from Active Directory Sites and Services I get an error message "Windows cannot delete object "Full Server Name / Path" because: the DSA object could not be found.

The old DC is not causing us any problems at present just gives errors when you use Exchange console or AD errors in the logs.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
