Viewing recovery plan

Before you start recovering your Active Directory forest, you can generate and view a recovery plan for the recovery project. The recovery plan reflects the settings specified in your recovery project. For example, you can generate and view the recovery plan after making some changes to the recovery project settings to identify whether these changes will have the effect you want.

Recovery project plan shows the details of each Active Directory domain and site included in your recovery project, such as the total number of domain controllers, the number of domain controllers to be recovered, and the number of domain controllers to be removed from Active Directory during the recovery.

For each domain controller, the recovery plan shows the following:

  • Currently selected recovery method.

  • DNS servers used by the domain controller before the recovery.

  • Current FSMO roles.

  • Whether or not the domain controller to be recovered is a global catalog server.

  • Applicable recovery alerts and pauses.

To view recovery plan
  1. Start the Forest Recovery Console.

  2. On the menu bar, click View | Recovery Plan.

To view detailed information about a particular recovery method (that is, the recovery stages and steps the related domain controllers will go through), click the name of that method.

You can use the toolbar in the report window to print or export the recovery plan to a preferred format.


Viewing a report about forest recovery or verify settings operation

Upon the completion of a forest recovery or verify settings operation, you can view a report on that operation.

To view a report
  • After the restore process is completed, in Forest Recovery Console, click the View Recovery Report option in the Post-Recovery Actions window, or on the menu bar, click View | Report.

You can use the toolbar in the report window to print or export the report to a preferred format.


When recovering an Active Directory forest, the application makes irreversible changes to the forest structure. However, before performing post-recovery steps, you still can retry to recover failed domain controllers.


Handling failed domain controllers

It is recommended that you investigate the failure reason for each domain controller whose recovery has failed. For example, make sure the failed domain controller is connected to the network and the recovery settings specified for that domain controller are correct.

In some cases, the Forest Recovery Console may prompt you to perform a certain action to resolve the issue encountered during the domain controllers recovery. If you are not prompted for action, you can perform the next steps.

To select an action for a failed domain controller
  1. In the List of Domain Controllers area, right-click the failed domain controller.

  2. Select one of the following actions from the shortcut menu:

Actions applicable to failed domain controllers

Action Description
Retry All Operations Allows you to rerun all recovery steps on the domain controller you selected. This action is recommended when you change the recovery method for the failed domain
Retry Last Operation Allows you to rerun the failed recovery step on the domain controller you selected. This action is recommended when you manually fixed the issue that had caused the recovery step to fail.
Skip and Continue Allows you to skip the current failed recovery step for the domain controller you selected and continue the domain controller’s recovery. This action is recommended only if you have manually completed the failed recovery step on the domain controller.


Adding a domain controller to a running recovery operation

There may be a situation where you want to add a domain controller that is not being recovered to the running forest recovery operation. You can do so without stopping the forest recovery operation.

To add a domain controller to a running recovery operation
  1. In the list of domain controllers, select the domain controller you want to add to the currently running recovery operation.

  2. Use the General tab to specify recovery settings for the domain controller.

  3. Right-click the domain controller, and then click Retry All Operations.
