Old Certificate Server Removal


I have an old Certificate Server that was pulled out of service more than a decade ago. I have a certificate server right now that is working fine, but I’m in the process of adding a wildcard cert. When I did a little snooping I noticed the old server still exist (Gopher) in PKIVIEW, certutil.exe and also in Sites and Services. At this point there is no way I can decommission it properly, can I just delete it from Active Directory Sites and Services > Services > Public Key Services and be done with it?
