  • Delete from Deleted Objects

    I can't find out how to delete a user account from the Deleted Objects container that I deleted from AD. I am running some tests and have deleted a user from AD and, using ldp.exe, see the object under the Deleted Objects container. I want to immediately remove this object from AD and I want to only do it for this object.

    Does anyone know how I can do this?

    Decrease your tombstone lifetime to one day then wait. Although your request is crazy and I've never heard of somebody needing to do this.

      Out of curiosity, why do you want to force the deletion of a tombstoned object?
