By using AdRestore.exe or ADRestore.NET, you can implement tombstone reanimation method to restore deleted objects from Active Directory database easily. So it basically do the same as using LDP in my previous post, Restore Deleted Objects in Active Directory Database Using Tombstone Reanimation (LDP.EXE)
I wrote the previous post to make deep understanding of the tombstone reanimation concept.
Formerly Sysinternals and now Microsoft, Mark Russinovich has created a command-line freeware application called ADRestore. The tool enumerates all of the currently tombstoned objects in a domain and allows you to restore them selectively, and provides a convenient command-line interface for using the Active Directory reanimation functionality.
You can download this tool from here:
Restoring objects with ADRestore.net
Guy Teverovsky has written a GUI version that allows you to easily restore deleted AD objects.
I found this tool will help you a lot when you need to restore more than one deleted objects, for example, an OU contains some objects.
You can download the ADRestore.NET here:
Here the demo steps:
I deleted an OU named Accounting contained some objects including users and groups.
First restore the OU.
Then restore the other objects one by one.
Until the last object
Then view the result
You can see from the steps above that using ADRestore.NET will be a lot of easier to restore more than one objects.
