Initially had 2 servers - A and B. Server A was taken down permanently a few weeks ago. Now seeing errors in Server B logged as Event ID 2092- NTDS Replication outlining FSMO roles not seized.

How do I seize these roles as well as stop the replication?

First of all, my apologies for replying over 48hrs later.

Before attempting to seize any roles, I double checked the FSMO role holder via GUI - all roles are held by the correct server. I believe the issue is that it continues to attempt to replicate with a now non-existent server
