Failed Server

I have been building a 2008 Server to replace my very old 2003 Server..

I had got as far as dcpromo ing it and was getting ready to move the FSMO roles, when the hard disk on the new machine failed. I have no mirror on the new machine. So I am going to re build the 2008 server again, with a new hard disk and then want to dcdpromo again.

How do I remove the references to this server from my existing AD and DNS server?

Thanks

if you havent transferred any roles - you can just remove all references in AD

However, for safety I would configure the "new" server with another name this time so as to be sure that there will be no confusion

Make sure it's gone out of DNS, DHCP, AD, and also check Active Directory Sites and Services.
