Steps for deleting an Organizational Unit

To delete an Organizational Unit

  1. In the console tree, locate the Organizational Unit you want to delete.
  2. Right-click the Organizational Unit, and click Delete.


  • If the selected Organizational Unit contains other objects, the console prompts you to confirm the deletion of the objects within the Organizational Unit. You can cancel the deletion of the Organizational Unit if you do not want to delete the objects it contains. Another option is to delete the Organizational Unit along with all the objects it contains.
  • When deleting an Organizational Unit, you may encounter an error message stating that access is denied. A possible cause of this error is that the Organizational Unit is protected from deletion. To delete a protected Organizational Unit, you should first go to the Object tab in the Properties dialog box for that Organizational Unit, and clear the Protect object from accidental deletion check box.



Management of Contacts

About contacts

A contact is an Active Directory object that holds e-mail and telephone information about an individual, without giving that person a security account on the network.

Contacts do not have a security identifier, unlike user accounts and groups. Contacts are used to add members to distribution lists or groups without granting them access to network resources.

You can use Active Roles to create, modify, and delete contacts. You can also perform Exchange-related tasks such as establishing email addresses for contacts.

The following section describes how to use the Active Roles console to manage contacts. You can also use the Active Roles Web Interface to perform contact management tasks.
