When no Child objects are visible below the Server object in Active Directory Sites and Services, you can remove the Server object.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group.
To delete a server object from a site
Open Active Directory Sites and Services.
Expand the Sites container, and then expand the site from which you want to delete a Server object.
If no Child objects appear below the Server object, right-click the Server object, and then click Delete.
Important 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.
Click Yes to confirm your choice.
