Active Directory Restores


You can restore the Active Directory database that is protected by an application-aware backup.

Note: Offline mining is only supported from CommCell Console.

Restoring the Active Directory Database

To restore the Active Directory database, follow the steps in Performing File System Restores. Perform an out-of-place restore operation and include the following options:

  • Locate the server with the same name as the VM that runs the Active Directory domain controller.

  • In the Agents area, click File System.

  • Under Backup sets, in the row for VSA_APP_AWARE_AD_BackupSet, select the default sublient, and then click Restore.

  • On the Backup content page, select the NTDS component as the item to recover.
