    Hi

    I have many GUIDs of lost domain controllers coming from a run of “repadmin /showvector /latency dc=???,dc=???” (see attached).

    I also will be doing a full cleanup using the following once I work out how to find the guids;

    http://petri.com/delete_failed_dcs_from_ad.htm

    The issue is that as you can see from the attached output these are very old and lost. They are only known to AD by the GUID and I want to work out how to find them and delete them from AD using ADSIedit.msc so I can have a clean AD from these lost and/or abandoned domain controllers.

    I tried to use the command below to find the object so I could manually delete it with ADSI edit, but it did not return anything;

    adfind -default -binenc -f objectGUID={{a6cb26cf-32eb-4171-865b-f4c2b7f9690c}} dn

    Do you have a suggestion on how to find these GUID objects so I can fully clean them up?

    Thanks
    Peter
