Deleting server name in replication 2k3

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.

More about deleting server replication
  1. the dc i want to remove is not in service any longer. it's named old-server. DC Is the active domain and local server on which I'm getting the error and no user can log in on the domain.
    Thanks
  2. 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.
  3. No, unfortunately, it went bad. now I need user to be able to log in a any time, w/o the error msg that I'm getting on the server event viewer.
  4. What about restoring the backups of the bad server onto another machine? Active Directory won't know that the hardware is different.
  5. Disk crash, unable to restore some datas
  6. I just a backup of windows folder from old server, could you help restoring this?
    Thanks
  7. I've found an article about removing an orphaned Domain Controller. I wonder if that helps with your problem?
