To delete a site

  1. Open Active Directory Sites and Services.

  2. In the console tree, right-click the site that you want to delete, and then click Delete.


    • Active Directory Sites and Services/Sites/site that you want to delete


  • Before a site can be deleted, any domain controller objects within the site must be deleted or moved to another site.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of 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.

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.
