Here is the topology: 2008 R2
One Forest - Alapha.com
Two Root Domain Trees - Bravo.com & Tango.com
Tango.com was just added with one domain controller. Unfortunately when I setup the first domain controller/created this domain under Forest Alpha.com, something went wrong because of connection issues and DNS delegation was not created and AD user manager or AD sites, pretty much nothing worked.
I tried a few things to fix it but I wasnt able to so i decided to remove the domain using dcpromo which failed so I used /forceremoval.
Then I followed the following article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/230306
to get rid of the Domain and i get the following error: See below:

DsRemoveDsDomainW error 0x2162(The requested domain could not be deleted because
there exist domain controllers that still host this domain.)
I was going to delete the domain partition via adsi, then try to clean it out from sites and dns.
Any ideas what is the best way. I will need to recreate this domain with the same name once this is cleaned out
