How to force replication with a domain controller that has an expired tombstone.

server2003 domain

I need some of the information on an older domain controller and I would like to force it to replicate with the other domain controllers, even though it has been out of contact past the permitted period.

How can I force replication with this domain controller past the tombstone date?

In this case it is going to be easier to do a dcpromo /forceremoval then clean up the metadata and promote the box again.  If you need links/steps we can provide those.

What caused the DC to not replicate for such a long period of time?
