Hello,
I have system that was once a DC but has been removed from our AD enviroment. the entry for this DC is still within the AD Sites and Services structure. When I try to delete this I get the following error

"the DSA object cannot be deleted"

This system as been offline for more then 1.5 years and roles were transfered from it when the system failed.

This is under Sites --> Servers
