Remove old NameSpace Servers

Last Modified: 2020-10-13
Dear Team,

We had a 2 File Server on DFS running on 2008R2. We have add 2 more Filserver to existing Nam Space which running on 2016 OS.
I have remove the old 2 server from replication group. But when i tried to remove the 2 old server from Namspace i am getting the below error.

The name space server cannot be removed. the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

I tried to do it from 2008R2 management interface and i am getting the below

The name space on old server cannot be detected. The parameter is incorrect . Do you want to forcibly remove the name server ?

If you forcefully remove the nameserver you might have difficulty creating name space in future........

I need your help in sorting the issue
