  • Is that an ADFS 2012 R2? If yes, just wipe the machine and rebuild it. The farm doesn't keep track of the secondary server, just the primary. So you have nothing to "clean".

  • If it is your only server then you have to restore it.

    If you have another secondary server, then you can take over the primary role from the secondary.
