Hi there, I am trying to remove metadata from root domain controller of a 2003 server, of older domains that appear as 2000 mixed domain function level,
This is causing issues, I followed the ntdsutil commands and the  error that I am getting is that the domain is being used, when I tried to remove the old dcs, servers I still get and error that the dc cannot be found.
This is a domain with 16 child domains where 3 are orphans, with no dcs, at forest function  level 2000.
I want to raise the function level, but because of the objects of non existent domains I cannot do it.

Do you have any suggestions?

It tells how to remove data in Active Directory after an unsuccessful domain controller demotion.  This may apply in your case or at least point you in the right direction.

Please let us know if these are the steps you already went through.
