A DC at a branch site is still displaying 4 replicated groups that I have removed
Is there a cache that can be cleared to removed these, why are they still showing up?

It seems that instances of the failed DC are still present .Verift that the instaces of the server is removed from AD sites and services,DNS,DC OU & AD database.Also change the DNS pointing on the server and client to point to online DNS server.

The DC eventually updated itself.
The deleted replicated groups are no longer showing.
