Dear Experts,

 I am troubleshooting a domain controller certificate installation that went wrong. A Domain controller died on us and we rebuild a new one with a different name. I have attached a screenshot of what I am talking about. I need to know if is okay to uninstall and reinstall the certificate services role. Domain-Controller.docx

How do we clean up certificate information from the server that died?

For your help thanks so much!

As you select the the option for installation certificate authority is right.

To remove old certificate authority contents refer below link.

When I reinstall the Certificate role do I want it to be Root CA or Subordinate?
