Orphaned Child Domain Removal Issue

Hi, we have single forest and a parent domain (PD) and a child domain (CD). The CD is no longer in user and domain controller was not removed properly using dcpromo but just removed from the network.

I used the following to remove the orphaned CD

but ended up getting this error "DsRemoveDsDomainW error 0x2015" and I googled the below URL relating to the error


But we dont have any W2K3 Domain Controller so there is no "domain management" option in the NTDSUTIL.

So basically stuck and unable to remove the orphaned domain...

Any help appreciated
