Delete a user - AWS Directory Service

Delete a user

Use the following procedure to delete a user with an EC2 Windows instance that is joined to your Simple AD directory.

To delete a user

  1. Open the Active Directory Users and Computers tool. There is a shortcut to this tool in the Administrative Tools folder.

    Tip

    You can run the following from a command prompt on the instance to open the Active Directory Users and Computers tool box directly.

    %SystemRoot%\system32\dsa.msc
  2. In the directory tree, select the OU containing the user that you want to delete (for example, Corp\Users).

  3. Choose Accounts. Then, select the user you want to delete. Right-click Name and choose Delete from the context menu.

  4. Choose Yes in the dialog box Are you sure you want to delete this object? This permanently deletes the selected user.
