The prepared data is erased when you close the wizard, unless you have selected the Keep extracted data after completing the wizard check box on the Backup Data Preparation page.
The Repair Wizard helps you restore the Active Directory® components on a domain controller, including the Active Directory® database, SYSVOL and registry. With this wizard you can select a Active Directory® backup, select Active Directory® objects for authoritative restore, and perform a primary restore of SYSVOL including registry hives.
The wizard has the following pages:
Use this page to view a list of computers for which backups are available and to select a backup to perform a restore. The list of computers in the window depends on how the wizard was started. If you select a computer and then start the wizard using the Action menu, the list includes only the selected computer. Otherwise, it includes all computers.
Locate the backup under computer name. Provides a list of computers for which backups are available and allows you to select a backup to perform a restore. To ensure the selected backup contains all Active Directory components needed for the restore, browse the Active Directory branch in the Computer and Backup Selection window. For the selected computer, the window lists all backups that are available in RMAD. A backup entry includes the date and time when the backup was created, and displays the backup age in days. The list only includes the backups that are registered in the RMAD configuration database.
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.
In the Repair Wizard, you can use backups created by applications that store backups in Microsoft Tape Format (MTF), such as Windows® Backup or Veritas™ Backup Exec™. However, snapshot backups are not supported by the Repair Wizard. You can restore Active Directory® data from such backups using the Online Restore Wizard and Group Policy Restore Wizard. The Extract Wizard also supports snapshot backups.
