ADAM Replication after ADAM Server Restored from Backup

We have 3 ADAM Servers and had to restore one.  We are getting replication issues as "The source server is currently rejecting replication requests."  I just removed the restored server out of our load balancer pool and disabled the NIC (they are all VMs).  Will the other two ADAM Servers start to replication again after a period of time since the offending server has effectively been removed?  Or is there a document I need to follow to enable replication again?

Also, what is the process to get the 3rd server (that was restored) back to a consistent state with the other two?  Should I just remove ADAM from it and re-install or go into a recovery type mode so it will take the current "good" ADAM data and replace its own?

I have found articles for this process for Active Directory, but not much is specific to ADAM.  Please post with instructions for ADAM specifically.  Thanks for your help!

It looks like the first 2 ADAM Servers are syncing.  I just need to get the last one (with the USN rollback) working again.

I will be going through an ADAM Uninstall with our "offending" server or a metadata cleanup if that will not work.  Then we will create a new ADAM Server as a replacement.
