Consequences of reinstalling Active Directory certificates services

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!

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