    Hi all,

    One of ours DCS was removed physycally from the domain and formatted.

    I see is still listed under sites&services.

    this DC does not hold any FSMO role

    What is the procedure to clean this DC out of the AD? when there is no
    option to run dcpromo to demote it.

    thx

    Remember to allow time for replication and make sure to clean up your DNS
