Unbind a Machine from a Domain but the machine name it is still in the AD Computer container.


  • I do apologize in advance for the low technical level question that I have, but I am super new in Active Directory and Domain.

    When I unbind (remove) a client machine from the domain and put it back to WORKGROUP, should the computer name also be remove automatically from the AD database, under the Computers container?

    Just in case this process is in not a real time, where is the section where I can find out how long usually it will take?  Or do I need to just check some specific settings?

    The reason why I ask this question, because I just unbinded a machine from the domain but if I go to my AD the machine name is still there.

    Thank you and have a nice day
