And you did NOT use vos remsite on the replication point first?  I 
suspect that would be a problem.

I always vos remsite before vos remove / vos zap the old RO replica.  If 
you don't, I suspect that the vldb might still reference those servers 
as having RO replicas, even though you removed them with vos remove.

Perhaps someone else has the definative guide on removing RO replicas 
from servers and then removing the .readonly volume.
