[Samba] Remove dead server from domain.

I have an S4 domain running that I added another S4 machine to as an 
extra domain controller. That machine, unfotunately died (quite 
spectacularly I must say, think magic blue smoke). I would like to 
remove the dead domain controller from the domain.

In ADUC I can see the DC under 'Domain Controllers' but when I try to 
delete it (having ticked the 'permanently offline' box) I get the 
following error:

"Windows cannot delete object 
Controllers,DC=internal,DC=stmaryscollege,DC=co,DC=uk because:

The specified module could not be found."

Is there a command line tool that I could try (samba-tool doesn't seem 
to have an option to remove the machine).

Any other suggestions?
