Hi,

An employee created 40 domains with their OS account and are no longer with the company so it is not possible to connect as them. How would I go about deleting these domains?

Thanks

I ended up having to ask IT to make a matching AD account as it was actually written in an old format so they were okay with me asking them temporarily to create it!

Did you try the delete button for a file or personal geodatabase?

or, for enterprise, ask IT to create a "matching AD account" to use for deleting those domains.

Yes I tried delete in database properties and the delete domain tool. Its an enterprise database, I can try to ask IT but they are pretty strict...if its my only option. I saw someone posting about XML, but I am not strong with XML.

You first have to remove the domain from usage within any feature class. https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/data/geodatabases/overview/create-modify-and-delete-domains.h...

Once you do that, you can try to delete them as the GDB admin.
