I’m currently trying to get my head around restore options for the following, somewhat niche, scenario –
– Single domain/DC environment
– 2008 domain functional level
– User objected deleted and has fallen outside of TSL (60 days)
– Valid system state backups, from Windows Server Backup, are held from when the user existed
How would you complete an authoritative restore of the single user without wiping out any other AD changes/new objects etc. in the period since the object was deleted?
If there is a simple solution that doesn’t involve building a secondary domain controller, I would love to hear it!
