When you create an Organizational Unit (OU) or security group in Active Directory, there is checkbox titled, "Protect container from accidental deletion." If you create the object with this check box marked, then you have to follow special steps if you would like to delete that OU in the future.
If you attempt to delete the object while it is protected, then you will receive the error, "Active Directory Domain Services. You do not have sufficient privileges to delete object, or this object is protected from accidental deletion."
1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
2. Select the root domain, "company.domain.com."
3. From the menu bar, select "View" and "Advanced Features."
4. Navigate to the OU you would like to delete.
5. Right-click, properties.
6. Select the "Object" tab.
7. Uncheck the option, "Protect object from accidental deletion."
8. Now the object is no longer protected. You can proceed with deleting the object.
