Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Follow this <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498″>Link</a> to remove the AD metadata information for your replaced server.
****************************
Check your current domain controller to make sure it holds all the FSMO roles. If there is a problem, check <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/255504″>here</a> on how to sieze the roles. Then dcpromo the new domain controller and if necessary, do the adprep and any schema tasks if needed.
