ad.asmx DeleteComputer will not delete if for instance the "Managed by" field is not empty.

The Security manager in my organisation has ordered me to delete the computer account from AD when reinstalling a machine, to make sure there is no group membeships left.

To accomplish this I've tried using the DeleteComputer from the webservices, wich is working perfektly on a standard object. "Unfortunately" we have an integration with our CMDB, that enter data in the "Location" and "Managed By" fields.
When that is the case, the action fails :-(

Is there anyway to force it?
