Object "computername" contains other objects

If you try to delete computer object in AD, you might receive warning message that Object <computername> contains other objects. To see what that computer object contains select in View menu "Users,Contacts,Groups and Computers as containers" in Active Directory Users and Computers Console and you will be able to see what that computer object contains.


In most cases it will be a printer, if the computer object is client workstation.
