Backup for Comparison (optional)

Use this page to select a backup to compare with the previously selected one. This window appears after you select the Compare two backups and report the differences option on the Wizard Operation Mode page.

  • Registered backups. Provides a list of registered Active Directory® backups for the selected domain. In the list, each entry includes the following fields:

    • Backup Age. Indicates how old the backup is. Active Directory® does not allow using a backup whose age exceeds the Active Directory® tombstone lifetime.

    • Created. Displays the date when the backup was created.

    • DC. Displays the computer name of the domain controller; the backup contains directory object data retrieved from that domain controller. The wizard will connect to the domain controller that corresponds to the entry you have selected.

    • Media. Displays the path and name of the backup file.

  • Register. To register additional backups, click Register, and then click one from the following items:

    • Register Backup File. Registers a Microsoft Tape Format (MTF)-compliant backup file (.bkf).

    • Register Backups in Folder. Registers all backup files that are in the selected folder.

    • Register Offline Active Directory Database. Registers Active Directory® database (ntds.dit file) unpacked from a backup created with third-party backup tools.

Only backups of the same domain controller can be compared. The first of the selected backups must be older than the second one.

Unpacked Backups Folder Selection

This dialog is use with Backup for Comparison to optionally change the folder where RMAD will unpack the selected backups.

  • Path to store unpacked backups. Displays the path to the folder currently used to keep unpacked backups. Each unpacked backup will be saved in a separate subfolder of that folder. To leave that path unchanged, click Next. To specify other path, type the path to a new folder or click Browse to select it. When finished, click Next.

Your changes will not affect the default settings for unpacked backups and only applies to the Backup for Comparison.

Backup Data Preparation

This page enables you to view the progress of the backup extraction. To stop the unpack process, click Cancel. You can also have the wizard keep the extracted data for future use.

  • Keep extracted data after completing the wizard. When this check box is selected, the wizard saves the extracted DIT database in a temporary folder, so you can reuse this information for subsequent starts of the Online Restore Wizard, Online Restore Wizard for AD LDS (ADAM), or Group Policy Restore Wizard. The temporary folder is specified using the Unpacked Backups tab in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory Settings dialog box. When this check box is cleared, the extracted data is erased when you close the wizard. Because the unpacking process is a lengthy operation, you should not close the wizard unless you are sure that no additional objects need to be compared or restored within the current session.

Domain Access Options

Use this page to specify a way the target domain to be accessed.


Agentless or agent-based method is set to agentless method by default. The setting for this can be found in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory Settings on the General tab. The Unpacked backups folderDefault method for compare and restore operations, displays the current selection.

  • Use agentless method to access domain controller

    When selected, ensures that only LDAP functions are used to access the domain controller. This box will be selected if Agentless method is selected in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory Settings on the General tab. For more details about agentless or agent-based method, refer Using agentless or agent-based method.

  • Target domain controller

    Displays the DNS name of the target domain controller for the restore operation. By default, the wizard uses the domain controller from which the backup was created. To choose another target domain controller, click Browse, and then select a domain controller from the Select Domain Controller dialog box.

  • Account used to access the target domain controller

    Displays the user account with which RMAD will access the target domain controller. By default, the wizard accesses the domain controller with the account under which RMAD is running. To choose a different account, click Change, and then complete the Select Account dialog box.

  • Automatically configure firewall before the restore operation

    When selected, the Windows Firewall settings will be configured automatically for the online restore operation. This check box is only made available if Agent-based method is selected in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory Settings on the General tab.
