Hi EE's

I got domain hgpt.xxx (parent domain), and another domain iac.xxx in the same forest of hgpt.xxx. and its was created a trust between these two.. I am very sure there is not existing domain controllers are for this iac.xxx.. when i am try to delete coming up with an error.

When trying in ntsdutil, coming up with an error

"DsRemoveDsDomainW error 0x2015 (The directory service can perform the requested operation only on a leaf object.)

In the NTDSUTIL, go into the domain and list the servers.  There must be a domain controller hanging out in there somewhere.

I did after a long google search..

Bro (Mahesh) In your first link, domain management syntax not working in windows server 2012. So i go forward with partition management and deleted the Orphaned domain name contexts.
I am not sure i did in correct way or not. but that particular domain name is remove from Active Directory Domains and trusts..

Thanks for your kind support.. But i would like to go through your second also.. once try second i will get back to you with the outcome.. Thanks alot mahesh..


Thanks to mattvmotas also..
