Active Directory Deleted Objects

by @ 2:41 pm on 4/10/2017. Filed under general, tech

In case it is ever a question (say like someone from MSFT tells you it works differently), objects deleted in Active Directory go into the Deleted Objects container[1] of the Partition the objects live in. They do not get moved to the Configuration Partition Deleted Objects container.

[1] There are some special cases here, but under no circumstances do objects from PartitionN go to the Configuration Partition CN=Deleted Objects container once deleted.
