Hello,
This is the replication status for the following directory partition on the local domain controller.

Directory partition:
DC=ForestDnsZones,DC=Domain

The local domain controller has not recently received replication information from a number of domain controllers. The count of domain controllers is shown, divided into the following intervals.

More than 24 hours:
1
More than a week:
1
More than one month:
1
More than two months:
1
More than a tombstone lifetime:
1
Tombstone lifetime (days):
60
Domain controllers that do not replicate in a timely manner may encounter errors. It may miss password changes and be unable to authenticate. A DC that has not replicated in a tombstone lifetime may have missed the deletion of some objects, and may be automatically blocked from future replication until it is reconciled.

Did you use dcpromo to demote the server before removing it from service? If not it may be worth starting it up again, letting it replicate (if it will), demoting it, and then removing it from service.

What about restoring the backups of the bad server onto another machine? Active Directory won't know that the hardware is different.
