Feature request - DC authoritive mode restore

By default Veeam performs a non-authoritative restore of the DC.

This is OK when you restore one DC to production enviroment.

I mostly restore one production DC to test enviroment. I know there are instructions, how to do manually authoritative restore.

Veeam have build-in functionality to perform authoritative restore in SureBackup where I cab choose between authoritative and non-authoritative restore.

I suggest to add possibility to perform authoritative restore to Full and Instant Recovery - at least when "Restore to a new location or with different settings" is selected.

And pls add "Open Logs path" to File or Help menu - as Veeam Off365 have :-)

This feature would be great as it will reduce the required work afterwards once the DC's have been restored.
In a real DR scenario, you will have other things to attend to so enabling a direct authoritative restore directly from Veeam will reduce time to do the post-work and you can start restoring other things

I'd like to add that the main reason we want this is Cloud Connect.

Currently we have to provide VM console access via VPN and locked down vSphere permissions and it's clunky to say the least.

Authoritative restore would allow a more hands-off restore process and reduce the need for console access.
