Viewing Deleted objects in Active Directory

Working through the AD preparation for an application install, and I’m logged into the emtpy root domain as a schema admin. Running the setup application, I get an error indicating that I don’t have rights to

    Organization Preparation         ……………………. FAILED
     You do not have permissions to read the security descriptor on CN=Deleted O
bjects,CN=Configuration,DC=ad,DC=uvm,DC=edu.

I need to confirm I can read the security descriptors for this object. Found a KB Article:

Viewing deleted objects in Active Directory

Before I dig deep with that, I also found this forum thread, suggesting that running the setup command in a console connection rather than RDP might help. I’m going to give that a try first.

Nice; that’s all it took. Onward and upward…
