  • ADrestore (sysinternals utility)

    I was testing out the ADrestore utility yesterday and it doesn't seem to work. I created an OU called "Virtual Business" as a test subject. I then ran ADrestore with this command:

    adrestore -r virtual

    It said that it found the deleted OU Virtual Business, and asked me if I wanted to restore it. I answered yes and it said it was successful. However, after 24 hours, I don't see the OU anywhere in AD. I even did a search from the root of my domain, and it's not there. Is there something else I have to do?

    Maybe dumb question, but have you restarted DSA.MSC?
    When you create an object using the DSADD utility you somethimes do not see that object appearing unless you restart dsa.msc (active directory users and computers mmc).

      Perhaps you can run "dsquery OU domainroot", to verify if the OU is created.

        Okay, just wanted to let people know the solution. Found it on another web site.

        This tool works great, but you have to run it from the Domain Controller holding the RID Operations Master Role!
