Orphaned 2008 R2 Domain Controller - Not showing in Sites and Services
Posted on 2014-09-17
We have local IT at a business that likes to tweak things and have us clean them up afterwards. That being said this is the issue we are having to clean up now.
A DC died and could not be gracefully removed. So going through the Metadata cleanup as usual and I am having this issue.
The DC that I am trying to cleanup does not show in Sites and Services. Most likely deleted from that console before the metadata cleanup was performed. Now when trying to go through the Metadata cleanup, at the list servers in site step, the only server that shows in the other GC in that site. The one I am needing to cleanup metadata for is not there.
I cannot find anywhere what to do from here. I am well experienced in metadata cleanup, but have never come across this particular instance before.
