Removing Secondary domain but still finding 'ghosts'

I am setting up a secondary domain in a cluster for the first time and after configuration problems and misplacing the eDirectoty objects I decided to remove it and start again (using TID 701052). I renamed the domain folder (for reference) but left the software folder.

When I install there is an option to import cluster data. When I look at that it lists all the mta and gwias from my original attempt.
Also when I installed an mta it filled up the gwha.conf with entries for all the old mta and gwias. Where are these coming from? Do I have to wipe all groupwise folders and start again? I am concerned that there is still something in eDirectory somewhere. The way TID 701052 goes about removing a secondary domain is not straightforward. Why is this not just a case of selecting and deleting it?

Thanks in advance

A) that TID is missing a character in it, and I haven't been able to find
it. Please try again.
B) GroupWise objects exist in two databases as well as the config files
installed on the hosts in question. So it is a matter making sure they
are all cleared out. What ever you tripped over in setting this domain up
prevented the normal 'just select and delete' from working.

I suspect that something was missed in that cleanup, so working through
that with you is what we'll need to do.
