How to Remove a Dead Domain Controller (DC) from Active Directory « Using LDP.exe.

Read the procedure carefully before starting!
Expand EVERY sub container underneath of the departed Domain Controller. Expand ALL containers until the words " No children" are found under each container. Otherwise there will be orphaned objects in the Active Directory. The website is not available now. Download the PDF document here

Clean up site information

Also remember to clean the Dead Domain Controller server from the Active Directory (AD DS) Sites information using the Administrative tool "Active Directory Sites and Services". Open the site that contained the Dead Domain Controller, right click the DeadDC and delete it.
