Can't remove server from DHCP server list

    I have a number of sites, each with a DHCP server. At my main site, I keep 2
    DHCP servers. After a recent round of server replacements, the DHCP duties
    were moved to new servers. The previous DHCP servers are still domain member
    servers, but DHCP was unauthorized and uninstalled.

    Somehow, they still appear on the list of authorized servers when you view
    that list from any of the other DHCP servers. I even tried putting DHCP back
    on the servers and then tried to unauthorize them. When I do that, I get the
    following error message:
    There is no such object on the server.

    I'm more than a bit frustrated by this. Does anyone have a fix for this

    Have you tried ADSI Edit?

    Having difficulty reading or finding responses to your post?
    Instead of the website you're using, I suggest to use OEx (Outlook Express
    or any other newsreader), and configure a news account, pointing to This is a direct link to the Microsoft Public
    Newsgroups. It is FREE and requires NO ISP's Usenet account. OEx allows you
    to easily find, track threads, cross-post, sort by date, poster's name,
    watched threads or subject.
    It's easy:

    Sorry, meant to add more info. You should find the DHCP server list in the
    Config Container in AD. Install the support tools, then create an MMC,
    add/remove snapins, add ADSI Edit, then save it, then rt-click ADSI Edit,
    connect to, in the Connection Point click on "Well known Naming Context",
    then in the drop-down box, select "Configuration". Drill down to
    CN=Services. I can't remember where it is after that. Drill down until you
    find it.

    I was finally able to fix it through ADSIedit. It wasn't very easy to find,
    but doing several searches finally located my rogue systems and got them
