FRS - w2k3 AD environment


I have a hopefully mind-numbing easy question that I am just missing here....

I have several ADC's in a w2k3 environment.  Originally, our sites were setup in one site link (Default site) and all of the ADC's would have the ability to communicate to any ADC in any domain etc.  Unfortunately due to network issues, we were unable to get all ADC's to be able to communicate as what is ideal.  We changed our topology and all of the servers in the current configuration are replicating normally.

The problem is that it appears that one of the ADC's has a backlog of the SYSVOL replication and when I reviewed the debug logs for FRS, it seems like most all of them are for legacy site links from before the topology change.  

My question to you is how is the best way to clear this out?  Re-create the site links?  I have complete convergence so I am sure these have already been processed through nutrition...  Not sure really how to get rid of them.  I confirmed DNS looks good, no errors really in the event viewer besides occasional network glitch errors...  

I appreciate your help and if you can lead me to what info will help to resolve this I'd appreciate it.

May be easiest just to DCPROMO it down and then back up and it will grab all new info?
