Hello Everyone,

One part of the company was sold . Site has been disconnected in AD I have already removed the non existing domain controllers, dns server. The Site is basically empty now in the Active Directory Sites and Services .

When I try to delete the Site which no longer exists it says object XY contains other Objects, are you sure to want to delete the Object XY and all the other objects ?

My question is what objects is it talking about ?

( I already manually removed the Workstations from the AD , the Server from the AD , the DNS entries from the AD )

Thanx
