Unable to remove orphaned server from SPFarm RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I'm unable to remove an orphaned server from SPFarm.  

    I've uninstalled SharePoint binaries on this server and then this server was retired and deleted, however, in "manage servers in this Farm" section, I seeing this orphaned server with status "Not Configured". When I click on "Remove Server". I'm seeing..

    "An object in the SharePoint administrative framework, "SPServer Name=XXXX", could not be deleted because other objects depend on it.  Update all of these dependants to point to null or different objects and retry this operation.  The dependant objects are as follows:"

    (No dependant objects were shown)

    However, On Health Analyzer, I'm seeing an event related to orphaned server.

    Title "One or more servers is not responding"

    Failing Services: SPTimerService(SPTimerV4)

    And also, the below message was recorded on event veiwer when I attempted to  "Remove Server" from central admin.

    "The DELETE statement conflicted with the REFERENCE constraint "FK_Dependencies1_Objects". The conflict occurred in database "SharePoint_Config", table "dbo.Dependencies", column 'ObjectId'.

    The statement has been terminated."

    Could someone suggest me a recommend practice to remove this orphaned server from SPFarm!!
