So, you performed a force removal on LDN2?

This is used as an option of last resort in order to salvage any other services on LDN2 without having to reformat it.

It cannot become a domain controller again without being reformatted.

I was able to dcpromo it again and it installed again without error they just won't replicate

Try unjoining LDN2 from the domain and rejoin, then dcpromo it. See if that works.

that was part of the problem I had to set the primary DNS on each server to look at the other server
