Domain still appears in logon

Hello, we a running win2k3 navtive active directory with a root domain and a
seperate peer domain. As a test, we had installed a peer domain and removed
it. In the root domain however, when users are logging on (at the cntl alt
delete screen), they still see this test domain. I cannot see the domain
when I run the ntdsutil, metadata cleanup, list domains... Any suggestions
are appreciated!

You say: "installed a peer domain"
Within or outside the root domain's forest?
If that peer domain was in the same forest use NTDSUTIL to cleanup
the reference
If that peer domain was in another forest (and you had a forest or
external trust) just remove the trust using Active Directory Domains
and Trusts
Cheers,

The peer domain was in the same forest, however when I go into ntdsutil I
cannot find any reference to this domain. Thanks!

There is a reverse DNS entry for an old DC that may have been in that
temporary domain. I will have this deleted. I'm not sure that this would
cause the problem though, would it?

Hi, yes I have tried both. I didn't find an orphaned dc within ad sites and
subnets. I also did not see the orphaned domain within the ntdsutil.

Thanks again though.

Well, open up AD domains and trusts and see what trusts are listed
there.

Yes, there was an old domain trust from that test domain that was there. I
removed it and now all is ok. Thank you very much!

No, that wouldn't have caused it. It was the old trust. Any domains that are
trusted will show up in list as an available domains to log in to.
