Updated: March 2, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

When no Child objects are visible below the Server object in Active Directory Sites and Services, you can remove the Server object.

Administrative Credentials

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group.

To delete a server object from a site

  1. Open Active Directory Sites and Services.

  2. Expand the Sites container, and then expand the site from which you want to delete a Server object.

  3. If no Child objects appear below the Server object, right-click the Server object, and then click Delete.

    ImportantImportant
    Do not delete a Server object that has a Child object. If an NTDS Settings or other Child object appears below the Server object you want to delete, either replication on the domain controller on which you are viewing the Configuration container has not occurred, or the server whose Server object you are removing has not been properly decommissioned.

  4. Click Yes to confirm your choice.
