Removing redundant sites in Exchange

This Content Component encountered an error
I have an Exchange 5.5 site on a Windows nt4 domain and we have another domain with the same configuration connected with a site connector. This site went down and I decided to rebuild a new site and installed Windows 2000 and Exchange 5.5. Before I create the new site connector I need to remove the old sites but I cannot do this as it tries to find the old server and fails. Is there any way to remove the redundant sites from my Exchange server to allow me to create the new site connector?
Here's what you'll need to do:

1. Remove the directory replication connector to the remote site.
2. Run a knowledge consistency check in a server in your local site.
3. Remove the site connector.
4. Recalculate routing.
5. Create the new site connector.
