What are the steps to delete a site from AD 2003 that no longer exists. A MS knowledge base gave instructions for removing it out of Sites and Services but it still exists in AD under mydomain>>_msdcs>>dc>>sites. Is it a manual delete from both locations, any others?, or is there a process to clean it up everywhere?

Thanks for your help.

You need to use the adsiedit tool -

This will help you clean up the objects that are lingering in AD...

Good luck!
