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

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.
