If you removed the Hub DC from Active Directory successfully, you can
delete its object in Sites&Services and the references left in DNS. KCC
should take care of the rest.

Cheers,

Hello southpaw,

Remove the DC from AD sites and services and KCC should do the rest automatic.
If it was DNS server check also that it is removed from the zones as Name
server.

Best regards

Hi

If you are pretty sure that the DC was decommission and all objects were
removed. You can go to AD Siste and services, then select the site and domain
controllers. In each domain controller you can select NTDS Settings right
click and click Check Replication Topology. This is an option.

Thanks all.. Worked like a charm just needed to allow sufficient time for
KCC to rebuild the AD connection objects to my HUB DC. However I notice my
connection object are not evenly distributed most connection objects are on
one DC in my HUB site . How can I get evenly balance among my 3 DCs in my
hub site .. fyi.. two of my DCs are Windows 2008 and one - DC is Windows
2003 ..


Thanks
