I have two old servers that are no longer present and are listed as computers in my AD. Both of them I am unable to delete. When I attempt to delete the computer The following:
The computer object you want to delete represents Active Directory domain controller "servername'
Which of the following statements best describes the reason for deleting this object?
1. I want to demote this domain controller from the domain and continue using it as a computer
2. I want to restart Active Directory replication for this domain controller
3. This domain controller is permanently offline and can no longer be demoted using the Active Directory Installation Wizard (DCPROMO)
I select option #3.
I get the following message:
"Object 'servername' is a container and contains other objects. Are you sure you want to delete object 'servername' and the objects it contains? This operation could take a long time if 'servername' contains a large number of objects."
I slect "yes"
The final message I recieve is: "The object 'servername' (or some of the objects it contains) cannot be deleted because: Access is denied"
I can't figure out why access is denied because I am logged in as a domain administrator.
