Removing dead Distribution Points from SCCM

Hi guys,

We have in our SCCM 2007 R3 environment an old Distribution Point from a server that was removed/rebuilt.

Unfortunately packages still show this though its status is Unknown.
I'd like to remove this but at the moment this is not working. On some packages I get an option to delete it under Distribution Points, on others it doesn't give me that option.

My question is - without going into the Database and deleting it manually, is there a way to do this in the SCCM ConfigManager?

I want to minimise as much damage as I know that the database is precious. The distribution point in question is part of a Child Site under the Primary site...

Any help would be appreciated?

When I attempt to run the DP Utility - I get the below errors:

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.


Any idea? I'd like to use this tool if possible.
