LSASS.EXE high and Server will not Delete from Domain

I wanted to delete a computer from the domain (in order to re-add it as the
PDC for a Win2K upgrade), but when I try and delete the computer it will
remove from srvmgr.exe

Subsequent deletes say it will be removed in 15 minutes. (it's been 10
hours). It can no longer logged in but it will not go!

LSASS.exe on the server is running at about 15% utilization? I have checked
for viruses.

How can I delete the computer?
Is there anyway of checking what is happening, like Novell DS debugger?

Regards
Tony

Is this a current domain controller? Let me make sure you understand you
cannot add a PDC back into a domain, even if you choose the same name and
domain name it will be a completely new domain. You must add it as a BDC
then promote it to PDC once it is up. What role does this machine hold that
you are trying to delete?

It is a member server.

As I understand it the option to add as a BDC is on the actual add. This
was a new server installed with NT4 purely for the purpose of a Win2K
upgrade. I want to add it as a BDC to ensure it is set-up correctly.

You have to choose BDC during installation. You will have to reinstall the
box to make it a BDC anyways so why not just blow it away and start over?

No Problem, will do.

But should I choose an alternate server name? The server name (LISA)
remains in server manager even when the server has been off for 2 hours.

Tony

PS Thanks very much for your assistance.

Is this name still in WINS somewhere? If your not tied to that name I would
give it a new one but most likely it is somewhere else and that is why it is
still showing up.

Sorted. Reinstalled the computer within an alternate Computer Name and
after about 2 hours the old machine name vanished and the new appeared as a
Backup Domain controller.

Now just need to promote it.

One Last question, the Event Viewer shows partial syncs. How do I tell if a
complete sync has been performed?

Thanks
Tony
