Looking at the script i suspect it will break once it tries to access

CN=System,CN=File Replication Service,CN=Domain System Volume (SYSVOL share)

Looking at my AD with ADSI "CN=System,CN=File Replication Service" is an 
empty branch.

Beside that the script removes:

1. Default Naming Context: CN=[server],OU=Domain Controllers,DC=...
2. Configuration: 

Also you must remove all DNS entries pointig towards your old dc.
Check all branches starting with an underscore if your domain and 
_msdcs. (for example: _tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.[your domains
