domain controllers that have been demoted still show up as DC

I have a few domain controller I dcpromo'ed to remove it from the network. I just noticed they are still showing up in DNS and other areas of the domain as DC's. What is the proper way to delete all remnants of these servers if these servers are no longer around to dcpromo them? They were 2003 and 2008 boxes. Thanks

Delete them from DNS and other areas.  What other areas are you seeing them in?   If they were not demoted cleanly you can go through metadata cleanup

Sounds like you are not dealing with that issue since you did demote them.

Thanks
