Manually Delete a member from SCVMM 2008 R2

I need to delete a user manually from SCVMM. We had two domain controllers connected on a forest level trust. One of the DCs we got ride off and now I get this error when I try to delete the traces of the user from the User Role properties for administrator.


The Virtual Machine Manager server could not validate user S-1-5-21-4138663505-4196259282-424024624-511.

Contact your Virtual Machine Manager administrator to verify that there is a two-way trust relationship between the user domain and the domain of the Virtual Machine Manager server.

ID: 11436

Is there a command for the Power shell to delete users? I cannot make any changes until I can get these old users out. The old DC has been wiped.

Thank you

Here is a screen shot of what I'm talking about. I need to get ride of all those S-1-5-21 members. They are from another domain that no longer exists and I am unable to bring back.

From what I gather from the screenshot, all the members of the administrator profile type are user from the domain that doesn't exist. This means one of the two things. Either you are logged on as one of these users (probably using cached credentials) or you are logged in a user not part of the administrator user role.
You should add another user from the existent domain in the administrator user role, log in as that user and then try to delete the other admins.

I am logged in as adimistrator on the server and I still get that error. Do you not know of a way to delete these from cmd line/powershell?

Yes there is a cmdlet to get this done but Im not sure if it works with SIDs.
You can use Set-VMMUserRole cmdlet with -removemember switch, however I am not sure if you can use SIDs as identity of the member. Refer to VMM Cmdlet Reference for more help.
It is worth a try.
