Backup of Active Directory (DC) tutorials

 

For BACKUP - Use NTBACKUP and choose SYSTEM STATE Data backup

NON-AUTHORITATIVE Restore –

  • Will restore all data from backup. Then changes made since last backup are replicated from other domain controllers.

  • Restart the system by pressing F8 and choose “Directory Services restore mode”

  • Use the backup wizard (NTBACKUP) to restore the data earlier backed up.

  • Restart Computer after restore is complete.

AUTHORITATIVE Restore

  • Will restore all data from backup. Any changes made since last backup are ignored. You may do this if you delete some objects lets say Sales OU from Domain, and due to some time passage, it is replicated to other ADC, now you can’t fix those things, then you will have to use Authoritative restore.

  • Restart the system by pressing F8 and choose “Directory Services restore mode”

  • Use the backup wizard (NTBACKUP) to restore the data earlier backed up.

Now at start – Run - NTDSUTIL

Now type Authoritative restore

Now type restore subtree OU=Sales, DC=tatasteel, DC=com

Now type exit and then close ntdsutil

Restart Computer after restore is complete
