Configuring Active Directory backups

Configuring Active Directory backups

Administrators can select a domain that contains Windows Server® 2012 (or later) domain controllers and back up Active Directory® user and group objects in that domain. When a situation occurs that requires a user or group object to be restored, administrators can select the object from a list and restore either the object with all the attributes it possessed when it was backed up, or only attributes the administrator selects. In the case of an organizational unit object, administrators have the option of either restoring all objects it contains or all objects it contains of a particular type.

IMPORTANT: Active Administrator® restores only selected user, group, and organizational unit (OU) objects, and their attributes from the backup file. If you require a backup file that restores Active Directory in its entirety, we recommend that you use an Active Directory disaster recovery product.

The Active Administrator AD Object Backup Service backs up the listed domains based on the settings in the Run backup boxes. If you are using Windows Server 2012 or later, Yes displays in the Supports Password Recovery column.

By default, an Active Directory backup creates temporary files during processing and stores the backup files when the backup is complete under the folder C:\ActiveAdministrator\ADBackups\DOMAIN_domainname (where domainname is the fully qualified name of the domain being backed up). You can specify the folder where the temporary files are processed and where the backup files are stored.

Configuring Active Administrator users

Active Administrator® users have unrestricted access to the Active Administrator Console. By default, the user installing and running the configuration wizard is automatically considered an Active Administrator user.

After you complete the configuration wizard, you can use the Active Administrator Console to manage users by selecting Configuration | Role Based Access.

Connecting to System Center Operations Manager and Enabling SNMP Notifications

If you have a license for the Active Directory Health module and are using Microsoft® System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), you can choose to deploy the Quest® Active Administrator® management pack, which establishes a connection to SCOM and enables Active Directory Health alerts from the Active Directory Health Analyzer agent to appear in the Operations Manager Monitoring pane under the Quest Active Administrator folder. You can also enable SNMP alert notifications.

NOTE: After you complete the configuration wizard, if you need to make any changes or if you skip this page, you can configure the SCOM connection and SNMP alert notifications in the Active Administrator console (Configuration | SCOM and SNMP Settings). You also can restart the configuration wizard (Start | AA Configuration Wizard). Page through the wizard until you reach the System Center Operations Manager and SNMP Notification page.
NOTE: After you complete the configuration wizard, you can edit the System Center Operations Manager and SNMP Notification to configure which Active Directory Health Analyzer alerts to push to SCOM and SNMP.
NOTE: If the check box is not selected, the Remove management pack check box is visible. Use this check box to remove the management pack.
