crashed DC (windows 2008 r2) on SBS2008 domain

Hello,

I have one SBS2008 installed with 15 workstations connnected to it.
My second server was Windows 2008 R2 installed as a second DC.

This second server has crashed and i would like to know how to remove his remains from Active Directory.

Since the crash my domain functions not 100%. The logs are full of replication, FSMO and DistributedCOM errors\warnings. Sometims computers loose their connectivity to the domain.

Help is highly appreciated.
Best regards,
Zoran
