Delete default tenant

Rodrigo Greff Passos 6 Reputation points

I created a new tenant in Azure AD and set it to default. The previous tenant, I am not able to delete. Even getting the message "All initial checks passed. Click 'Delete' to Delete tenant 'Default Directory''. After deletion, you will need to sign out." it does not delete and shows this error which follows in the attached image.239507-tenant.jpg

    @Rodrigo Greff Passos
    Thank you for your post!

    Based off your screenshot, I found a related thread with troubleshooting steps that might help resolve your issue.

    Delete tenant:

    1. Run Windows PowerShell ISE as Administrator
    2. Run the command Install-Module MSOnline (You may skip this command if you already have Msol module installed on your machine)
    3. Run the command Connect-Msolservice and enter the credential of your Global Admin account (eg. User: admin@[organization] + password)
    4. Run the command Get-MsolServicePrincipal | Select Displayname
    5. Run the command Get-MsolServicePrincipal | Remove-MsolServicePrincipal
    6. Please kindly ignore the errors as there will be some build-in Microsoft Apps cannot be deleted.
    7. Log in back to your Azure tenant, and try one more time to delete it.
