Support for native Windows tools for restoring domain controllers

Recovery Manager for Active Directory can restore selected DCs from backups and then recover the remaining DCs by demoting them and reinstalling Active Directory. Depending on the Windows version installed on the target DC, Recovery Manager for Active Directory uses either the Active Directory Installation Wizard (DCPromo.exe) or the native Windows PowerShell cmdlets Install-ADDSDomainController and Uninstall-ADDSDomainController.

Support for the native Windows tools allows for a recovery methodology that mirrors the prescriptive guidance laid out the forest recovery method recommended by Microsoft in the Planning for Active Directory Forest Recovery whitepaper.


Recovery pauses

A recovery pause allows you to automatically suspend the recovery of one or more domain controllers immediately before a certain recovery stage begins for those domain controllers. You can then manually resume the recovery of these domain controllers from the point where it was suspended (paused).

For example, you can temporarily suspend the recovery of particular domain controllers to take a manual action outside of Recovery Manager for Active Directory.


Recovery pauses cannot be used to prioritize the recovery of certain critical domain controllers, domains, or sites in your Active Directory forest.

For a recovery project, you can create multiple pauses, each having different settings. For each recovery pause, you can define the domain controllers to which the pause will apply and specify a recovery stage before which you want to activate the pause.


Recovery plan

Recovery Plan is designed to improve the overall transparency of the recovery process. The plan is a detailed recovery process roadmap you can generate and view for the current recovery project in the Forest Recovery Console. The plan provides an overview of recovery settings specified for the domain controllers in the recovery project, thus allowing you to gain a better understanding and control of every aspect of the forest or domain recovery.

Generating and reviewing the recovery plan before you proceed with the recovery helps you identify and if necessary avoid any unwanted recovery actions by adjusting the project settings appropriately. You can also print out the generated project recovery plan or export it to a number of presentation formats provided by Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SRSS) on which the Recovery Plan feature builds, such as PDF, XML, CSV, TIFF, and Excel.


Running custom scripts

You can configure Recovery Manager for Active Directory to automatically run custom scripts on the Recovery Manager for Active Directory computer before, after, or during the recovery operation.

This version of Recovery Manager for Active Directory is supplied with the Microsoft Windows Script File (.wsf) file that serves as a template where you can insert your custom scripts written in the VBScript or JScript language.

The .wsf file has a number of XML elements where you can insert your scripts. Depending on the XML element where you insert it, your script will run

  • Before the recovery operation starts in the current project.

  • Each time before the restore from backup operation starts for a domain controller in the current project.

  • After the restore from backup operation completes for all domain controllers in the current project.

  • Before the reinstall Active Directory operation starts in the current project.

  • Each time before the reinstall Active Directory operation starts for a domain controller in the current project.

  • Each time the reinstall Active Directory operation completes for a domain controller in the current project.

  • After the recovery operation completes in the current project.
