Currently we have the Ad 2016 version , we noticed that the old child domain name is currently existed on AD domain and trust but we already removed, decommissioned them already..

    Hi all

    For your references, the issue was already been resolved by the following procedure below. please refer on this link for references.


    Procedures :

    1.Click Start, click Run, type ADSIEdit.msc, and then click OK
    2.Expand the Domain Naming Context container.
    3.Expand DC=Your Domain, DC=COM
    4.Expand CN=System.
    5.Right-click the Trust Domain object (childDC. domain.com), and then click Delete
    7.Right-Click CN=Users--> CN=child domain$ and then Delete. If not deleted (no problem follow next step)
    8.Go to ADSI edit in administrative tools
    9.Right click ADSI Edit ->connect to Domain's Naming context" configuration" then click ok
    10.Cofiguration-->CN=configuration,DC=your domain,DC=com -->CN=Partitions
    11.Select and Delete Name: CN=your child domain /Directory partition Name: DC=child domain,DC=com

    I would recommend you check if all the changes for the domain deletion is replicated among all the DCs.The following command can be run to force the replication:
    Repadmin /syncall /APeD

    Then you can refer to the following link to do a metadata cleanup for Removing Orphaned Domains from Active Directory.
    Similar case for your reference:
