Active Directory Object Restore

Post by simeonh » Sep 12, 2012 3:38 am

Hi guys,

I had one of our admins accidently delete to many computer accounts out of active directory (he was supposed to only delete inactive accounts)
I performed an Application Item Restore of some computer accounts and it came up with a message saying that you will still have to re-join the computers to the domain.
Is there any why of getting around this issue? To restore the accounts but not having to re-join them to the domain.

Simeon, Veeam B&R does not restore computer accounts passwords, so for the passwords to be generated, you have to enable the restored accounts and re-join computers to domain.
