Problem on deleting offline DC

By sevenelevenph ·
Our DC controllers are running under SP4 already and all patches were updated from the internet.

One more thing, I've seized all the master role from a defective server using the NTDSUTILS command, im trying to remove the defective DC controller which previously holds all the operations master role, the message is "DSA object cannot be deleted". I want to delete the server but it wont allow me. THe DOmain Naming Master also cannto be contacted. Oh boy, this is what we called "DISASTER"

Try using the CD for Win2000 SRV, restart with it and go through all the stuff till you get to partition select. Use C: and format the whole thing. And have the SP's and all the programs that were on it, ready on the Network.

I found the reason why I still cant delete the object in the AD. Our firewall is the reason why. I changed the policy from deny all to allow all, then select the apropriate services only. Wheeew. . .
