Removing failed Certificate Authority from Active Directory

Hi,

I have been having some problems with an old CA on our domain that I believe is conflicting with a new one.
I was unaware that an old one had existed and that server no longer exists (I wrote failed in the title to get more hits, although it is effectively the same thing). I have then installed a new Root enterprise CA and sub CA in the same domain without first removing the old one.

What is the best course of action to take? I understand that I may have to manually remove files but have been able to find a good guide. Just ones that for for removing CAs that are still running.

At the minute I am able to see both CRLs and certificates in the domain but the new CRL is not being noticed.

I am using windows server 2008r2

I hope someone can help me a again.

Josh
