Server Computer Account has been deleted in AD - How do I recreate if I can no longer login to the domain?

Last Modified: 2017-03-22
The most important server in my network (the one that has my Dispatching Database on it) computer account has been deleted from Active Directory Computers and Users. Since I now cannot login to the domain how can I unjoin (or whatever) the domain and then rejoin the domain? Or what is my best course of action?
Thanks in advance,
