RecoveryManager Plus offers three modes of restoration.
This section will explain how you can perform restorations in Windows servers/domain controllers.
To perform a restoration,
Bare metal restoration is the process of restoring a Windows server or domain controller from scratch in the event of a complete breakdown of the server. When you restore data from such a backup, you will recover the entire server as well as data on all volumes, files, folders, application data, and so on.
If you’re restoring a domain controller, there are two modes of restoration:
Note: A domain controller can be authoritatively restored only after the non-authoritative restoration is complete.
The following section will explain how you can restore a Windows server or domain controller from a bare metal backup.
Prerequisite: Make sure you have a recovery media for your Windows server and domain controllers.
A recovery media is a minimal OS with limited functionalities that contains all data required to boot your machine and run RecoveryManager Plus's restoration wizard.
Once it is created, it can be used to restore multiple Windows servers. You only need to create one recovery media for all servers and domain controllers in your environment.
Note: Make sure you have Microsoft Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) installed. If not, download it from here.
Note: If the entered location is a shared path, select Authentication and provide the credentials of a user who can access the location.
Restoration of Windows server/domain controller
RecoveryManager Plus can restore the backup of a Windows server or domain controller to the same or a different physical machine. You can also use the product to restore the backup of a physical Windows server or domain controller to a virtual machine.
Once the recovery media is ready, follow the steps listed here to restore a server.
Non-authoritative restoration of domain controllers
Follow the steps given below for non-authoritative restoration of domain controllers.
Authoritative restoration of domain controllers
If you wish to reset all domain controllers in the domain to the state in the backup point, perform an authoritative restoration of the domain controller by following the steps given below.
Note: A domain controller can be authoritatively restored only after the non-authoritative restoration is complete. Follow the steps listed in the previous section to complete the non-authoritative restoration before proceeding with the authoritative restoration.
restore subtree <distinguished name of the domain<
restore subtree <distinguished name of the subtree<
restore object <distinguished name of the object<
