Delete computer account from AD vs Removing it from Domain
Posted on 2007-10-11
My supervisor says it is better to remove a computer from the domain instead of deleting it from Active Directory when the PC is only going to be rebuilt under a new name anyways. Is this correct, or does it make no difference? I ask only because sometimes a PC gets rebuilt before it is removed from the domain, and by that point it is too late anyways. He also says that when a PC is removed from the domain, all information about the PC account is removed more cleanly vs just deleting the account. Is this correct as well?
