Had a 2008 server that went unstable. Installed a 2012 R2, joined the domain and promoted it to DC. Transferred the FSMO roles (not seizing them) and tried to demote the 2008. No can do. Eventually I turned it off. So now we have the DFS Replication problem...
Is there a manual way to clean the 2012 R2 to totally forget about the 2008? I know there is a way to manually clean after seizing the roles. Can i do that?

Yes. Delete the object from ADUC. Delete the replication links in AD sites and services. Do a metadata cleanup. Should be good to go. Not ideal, but not that uncommon either.
