Hi guys,

I have to delete 4 groups on admnistrators tab of 2003 Servers, i can delete 3 of them with their name but the 4 one includes orphaned sid .
The script errors like " the object could not be member .. " do you have any idea how can we delete these groups inludes SID ?  


Const ForReading = 1
Dim ipfile
ipfile = "C:\par\ip_del.txt"
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(ipfile, ForReading)

Do Until objTextFile.AtEndOfStream
   strNextLine = objTextFile.Readline
   arrServiceList = Split(strNextLine , ",")  
   
strComputer = arrServiceList(0)

Set objAdmins = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/Administrators")
Set objGroup.Name= "S-1-5-21-1757981266-1580436667-1343024091-514"
objAdmins.Remove(objGroup.ADsPath)
Loop
WScript.Echo("all done")
