Hi guys so i've been welcomed into a new environment with a number of Domain controllers, all currently physical, however in the past they have added Virtual ones. All the virtual servers were taken offline for some reason and are well past the tombstone period. As such, its creating all sorts of errors when other DC's try to contact these offline servers. They do however have intent on re-introducing them into AD at a later date.
My question is, aside from do a meta cleanup and removing them from AD, are there any other options for handling a situation like that.
Thanks in advance
