Removing Domain Controller

I found out that I lost telecom connectivity to one of my sites today before I was unable to properly dcpromo it.  Connectivity will not be restored.  Is the best course of action just to do a metadata clean up?  This server holds no FSMO roles.

Do a metadata cleanup if can not be demoted correctly.

Yes, that's perfectly fine to do.  In addition, make sure you go through DNS and clean up any traces of the DC there as well.

Short of having the box shipped to you and reconnecting it to the domain, this is all you can do and it happens quite often.
