I recently Dcpromo'd a domain controller but I'm still seeing this on one of my new 2016 DC's.  The old DC doesn't exist and I don't see any reference to it but for some reason, the new DC is still trying to replicate to it?  I've googled some articles but can't seem to get an answer.  When I run repadmin, I don't see it show up but it's obviously still somewhere in AD.  AD replication is fine and I'm not seeing any errors except this one...
