from that last 2003 server, do netdom query fsmo and verify the infrastructure master listed is valid

you're getting that netdom error because you did it after doing a force removal since it is now not a domain controller

where is the raise domain functional level error?  you posted the same dcpromo message again

since you forcibly removed the domain controller, you need to do metadata cleanup because the other domain controllers think that 2003 server is still there
