Active Directory and more….

Active Directory – Recovery

Posted by chrisbeams on May 12, 2009

I wonder how many people out there have a proven domain and/or forest recovery process. We can all follow the MS White paper but it’s a lengthly process. What happens if your company wants a 4 hour turn around of a multi domain globally distributed forest. How likely is domain or forest failure anyhow? I think a schema change is a possibility but a very remote one. I guess more likely is user error, deleting an Ou perhaps.

So really we need object recovery, and potentialy worst case scenario recovery for a corrupt schema.

I have used the Quest product and also normal ntbackup. The Quest product is v cool but also costs money which in these times is tricky.

I am going to have a play in my VM lab at home and upload my results

Cheers
Chris
