Group Policy Objects (GPOs) in Active Directory (AD) play a vital role in controlling the working environment of user and computer accounts. A single GPO can contain hundreds or thousands of settings. It can also be linked to an OU or a domain, thereby controlling the users and/or computers located within. When such a powerful AD entity has its components modified or deleted accidentally, the impact is felt across a large section of your AD environment. The need to restore GPOs to perfect working condition takes high priority.
GPOs contain over 5,000 settings, so restoring them is a complex process which requires precision to identify the exact changes to the GPO settings and to reverse those changes . The need of the hour, therefore, is a holistic solution that can backup and restore GPOs instantly. A software that can also help in change management to identify the individual settings changes and restore them would be an added advantage.
The native backup and recovery tool is simply not equipped to handle this complex task. PowerShell makes the process even more complicated than it already is owing to its need for complex scripts and lack of a user-friendly GUI.
RecoveryManager Plus is a web-based Active Directory backup tool that will let you track each change made to GPOs, and perform restorations efficiently.
The following features of RecoveryManager Plus makes it an ideal Active Directory backup tool, vital to any organization.
With RecoveryManager Plus, you can prevent longer downtimes caused by accidental modification of AD data.
