We've decommissioned an old dhcp server and would like to remove it from AD. however, i've noticed that while trying to delete it. AD is complaining that there is an object underneath this server
called IASidentity? Is it okay if i delete it? Has anyone had this happen to them.

IASIdentity is created by Microsoft Internet Authentication Service.

Internet Authentication Service (IAS) is the Microsoft implementation of a Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service (RADIUS) server and proxy in Windows Server 2003. As a RADIUS server, IAS performs centralized connection authentication, authorization, and accounting for many types of network access, including wireless and virtual private network (VPN) connections. As a RADIUS proxy, IAS forwards authentication and accounting messages to other RADIUS servers.

If you no longer use this, then you can delete it.
