Restore

This tab allows you to restore AD objects to the state before deletion or modification.

To restore any AD object, Navigate to Active Directory → Active Directory → Restore.

RecoveryManager Plus provides two views with which to explore objects in each backup.

Simple Restore

The simple restore is the default restoration method and it displays the current value and the value in the selected backup. You can either choose to restore a version completely or selectively restore particular attribute(s).

  • Select the domain that contains the object to be restored in the Domain drop-down box.
  • Specify the approximate time period within which the object was modified in the Select Backup field and click Search. Once the time period is specified, the number of backups taken during this period is listed. Select the backup in which the object to be restored is present.
  • Type the name of the modified object in the Object Name field. If you are not sure of the name, make use of the filters such as Contains, Starts With, Ends With, and Equals.
  • Click on the <+/-> icon in the OUs field to select the OU in which the required object is likely to be present.
  • In the Object Type field, select the type that fits from the drop-down box and hit Search.
    • To search for changes made to a particular attribute, click on the icon next to the object type to view all the attributes. Mark the check-box against the attribute by which you wish to filter.
  • All objects that fit the entered criteria are displayed.
  • You can either choose to restore a version completely by marking the check-box against the object name or selectively restore particular attribute(s) from a version. To selectively restore individual attributes, click on the number in the Number of Property Changes field corresponding to the object and select the attributes that you would like to restore.
  • Click Restore to complete the restoration process.
  • Note: If you wish to restore the object attributes to their previous values, mark the check-box against Restore Previous Backup Value and click Restore Previous Backup Value.

Granular Restore

In this comparative view, the current value of an object's attribute is compared with all its previous values in the selected time range, so that you can pick the best to restore.

  • Select the domain that contains the object to be restored in the Domain drop-down box.
  • Click on the Filter button to narrow the search for the object to be restored.
