Windows cannot delete object LDAP  :// name of my server and container of old server DC.  Access is denied.

In Windows Server 2008 R2, We can achieve to clear the metadata of orphaned Domain Controller by simply deleting the DC server object in Active Directory.

But when we try to delete the orphaned DC in the active directory then the error mentioned that Windows cannot delete object LDAP  :// name of my server and container of old server DC.  Access is denied.

Basically this problem may occurs when you attempt to delete the object that has enabled by Protect object from accidental deletion. More >
