Unregister an NPS from an Active Directory Domain

Applies to: Windows Server (Semi-Annual Channel), Windows Server 2016

In the process of managing your NPS deployment, you might find it useful to move an NPS to another domain, to replace an NPS, or to retire an NPS.

When you move or decommission an NPS, you can unregister the NPS in the Active Directory domains where the NPS has permission to read the properties of user accounts in Active Directory.

Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to perform these procedures.

To unregister an NPS

  1. On the domain controller, in Server Manager, click Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers. The Active Directory Users and Computers console opens.

  2. Click Users, and then double-click RAS and IAS servers.

  3. Click the Members tab, and then select the NPS that you want to unregister.

  4. Click Remove, click Yes, and then click OK.
