To delete a site link

  1. Open Active Directory Sites and Services.

  2. In the console tree, click the inter-site transport folder that contains the site link you want to delete.


    • Active Directory Sites and Services/Sites/Inter-Site Transports/inter-site transport folder that contains the site link you want to delete

  3. In the details pane, right-click the site link you want to delete, and then click Delete.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group (in the forest root domain) or the Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

  • To open Active Directory Sites and Services, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Sites and Services.

  • Before deleting a site link, you should ensure that its member sites will still belong to at least one existing site link.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
