The Delete button in the Recycle Bin is not available to Assistant Admins with the Permanently Delet (NETIQKB8726)

Directory and Resource Administrator 6.50

The Delete button in the Recycle Bin is not available to Assistant Admins with the Permanently Delete A User From Recycle Bin power.


When an Assistant Admin selects a user account in the Recycle bin the Delete button is not available in the MMC interface even though the Assistant Admin has the following powers:

  • Delete A User Account.
  • Permanently Delete A User From Recycle Bin.
  • Undelete User From Recycle Bin.

Both the Restore All and Restore buttons are available and work correctly.

This is by design.  In DRA 6.50 only Built-in Admins are able to permanently delete user accounts from the Recycle Bin.


A supported enhancement for this is now available.  To allow an Assistant Admin to permanently delete a user from the Recycle Bin, back up the existing RecycleBinMain.js on each IIS server with the Directory and Resoource Administrator Web Component installed.  Download the RecycleBinMain.js file and copy it to the following directory on each IIS server:


This file does not require a restart of the MCS OnePoint Administration Server service to take effect.  Simply close and relaunch the MMC user interface after installing the file, after which the Delete button will be available.

This issue is resolved in Directory and Resource Administrator 6.6 and later.
