You are right I joined the domain as RODC which is now offline and I have
deleted the VM.
Can you please enlighten me on how to
know which entries to delete, How to demote a RWDC in a testbed, it will
list all the entries that have to be remove, then you'll have to remove
them by hand in your production domain.

I'll suppose from the name of your DC that it is a RODC. I've never used
the demote command line to remove a RODC. Perhaps you have found a bug.
Anyway, you can still remove all the references by hand. To know which
entries to delete, you can demote a RWDC in a testbed, it will list all the
entries that have to be remove, then you'll have to remove them by hand in
your production domain.
Please help on how to remove all the records of this dead domain from the
