Hi;
I checked the box "Protect container from accidental delete" box when I create a OU in Windows 2008, how can I delete this OU, because I do not want this OU and want to create another one.

In the Active Directory Users and Computers console, go to the "View" menu and enable the option "Advanced Features" if it is not already enabled.

Then, on the OU, right-click the OU and press Properties. Go to the Object tab and uncheck the box marked "Protect object from accidental deletion".

Press OK. The accidental deletion is now removed and the OU can be deleted.
