    Remove DFS namespace/share

    My server that had my DFS share for the MSI's died and i have now rebuilt the server with the same name, and tried to reset up dfs on this server (2008 r2) but am getting errors! I run the DFSUTIL and it can still that the domain has the old share called 'MSI$' but i cant add this server as namespace server to then create the share again!

    I know i should have multiple servers running it but i never got round to doing the second one!! note to self - do it this time!!! Luckily ive got all the msi's backed up!

    Do i need to rename this server to then create a new DFS share or can i force the domain to forget the old server and dfs share then start again!

    Any help appreciated!
