Delete Failed DCs from Active Directory

Delete Failed DCs from Active Directory There are frequent situations when a system administrator has to manually remove a domain controller from Active Directory. Such situations arise in the event of a physical failure of the north with the role of a domain controller or other abnormal situation. Naturally, it is most preferable to delete a domain controller using the DCPROMO command (detailed DCPROMO and its parameters) However, what to do if the domain controller is unavailable (turned off, broken, unavailable over the network)?   Naturally, you can’t just delete a domain controller account using the Active Directory User and Computer snap-in.   In a domain on Windows Server 2008 and above, when you delete the computer account of a failed domain controller using the ADUC console (Dsa.msc), automatic metadata cleaning in AD is performed. And in general, no additional manual manipulations, described below, are necessary.For manual removal of a domain controller from Active Directory, the NTDSUTIL utility is suitable. NTDSUTIL is a command line utility that is designed to perform various complex operations with ActiveDirectory, including maintenance, management, and modification of Active Directory. I already wrote about using Ntdsutil to create snapshots of an Active Directory.   The following instructions will allow you to manually remove the failed domain controller.   Note: when using NTDSUTIL, it is not necessary to enter the entire command, it is enough to...

How to find all inactive accounts in a specific OU in AD

How to find all inactive accounts in a specific OU in AD Over time, a lot of old and unnecessary information accumulates in Active Directory, which periodically needs to be deleted. The task arose: to clear a specific OU in Active Directory from PC accounts that have not been used for more than 120 days. As a utility for conducting mass operations with AD, I prefer to use dsquery, and as a parameter that determines the time during which the account was not used – the time since the last password change of the computer in the domain. To sample all inactive (at least 120 days) PCs in a specific OU, I use the following command: dsquery computer “ou = Computers, ou = Moskow, dc = corp, dc = winitpro, dc = en” -stalepwd 120 -limit 10000> c: \ 12.txt Parameters: —stalepwd 120 is the time since the last password change of the PC in the domain, limit 10000 – limit the number of PC records to display. 10,000 c: \ 12.txt – redirect the output of the command to the file c: \ 12.txt And to remove the found PC accounts, you need to use the dsrm command: dsquery computer “ou = Computers, ou = Moskow, dc = corp, dc = winitpro, dc = en” -stalepwd 120 -limit 10000 | dsrm PS: dsquery utility is part of the...
