Descriptions and Service Pack Information for Computers in Trusted Domain Does Not Update

Unable to Access Deleted Objects Container when Removing an OU from the Subtree List

 When you remove an OU from a managed subtree, DRA reports that it is unable to access the Deleted Objects Container. This issue is caused by DRA changing the domain credentials from the override account to the DRA service account when any OU is removed from the subtree list. (ENG318512)

 Each time you remove any OU from the subtree list, configure the domain credentials to use the override account in the Managed Domains Properties window.
