It looks like others have solved your issue, but just checking on the
broader issue of removing servers.  Is the UUID for the removed server,
and if so how did you remove the DC that died?

We now have 'samba-tool domain demote --remove-other-dead-server' that
will do a more comprehensive job cleaning out the old DC.
