DC Cleanup Remnants

I was wondering if someone could tell me the proper way of removing remnants of a secondary domain controller that was force removed from the domain on the authoritative DC.  Both servers are global catalogs.  I continue to get errors about how AD isn't replicating properly.  I wasn't sure if it was as simple as removing the server from the DC OU in AD or if there was something more to it.

Thanks in advance

Delete the dead DC from ADUC (known as metadata cleanup)

You used to have to use the command line.  That still works but it is much easier now.   I'd also just double check DNS and sites & services after you are done to make sure it is gone.


Thanks

Remember to check AD Sites & Services to ensure the DC is no longer there.

This won't affect the good DC I run this on?
