Hi Experts,
I had an old server which is already deleted.
But in the ADS the server is still visible.
Now I wanted to delete the entry, and a pop up came with:
Are you sure to delete it, because some references are still available.
Can I delete this old server from ADS with all the references without problems ?
I was an old ADS.

And what about ADSI Edit, when I delete the old server from here, are all referneces deleted automatically or do I have to delete all seperate ?

Delete from ASDIedit > Check the server is no longer listed in AD sites and Services.

Then perform a metadata cleanup http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736378(WS.10).aspx


Finally check its not in your AD (start > run  > dsa.msc and then check your DNS forward lookup zone to make sure its not listed as a domain controller.

Ok,

now I see the server is still in ADS.
Should I delete the server from dsa.msc first or just from ADSI ?
