Granular domain-level recovery

Recovery Manager for Active Directory makes it possible to selectively recover domains in an Active Directory® forest. Instead of restoring the entire forest, you can run the restore operation on one or more domains the forest includes. This method is useful if you have located the domains that include dangerous or unwanted data and want to selectively recover them. Before you proceed with the selective recovery of domains, it is highly recommended you make absolutely sure the dangerous or unwanted data is not replicated to other domains in the forest.

To selectively recover domains, you can either create a new recovery project that will only include the domains you want to recover, or open an existing project for the entire forest, and then select the domains you want to recover in that project.


Integration with On Demand Recovery

From version 9.0, Recovery Manager for Active Directory can be integrated with On Demand Recovery to restore and undelete on-premises objects that are synchronized with cloud by Azure® AD Connect. For more details, please see


Automation of manual operations

Using Windows tools to recover a forest requires numerous and lengthy manual steps repeated on each domain controller in the forest. This process results in a very slow and tedious recovery prone to human error. Recovery Manager for Active Directory automates those numerous manual steps not only saving vast amounts of time but also eliminating the risk of human error.


Creation of virtual test environments

Recovery Manager for Active Directory includes a component called the Active Directory® Virtual Lab. This component helps you create virtual test environments from an Active Directory® forest. You can use the created test environments to design and evaluate Active Directory® disaster recovery scenarios, test planned Active Directory® changes before deploying them to production, train your staff to perform Active Directory® related tasks, and more.

To create a virtual test environment from an Active Directory® forest, you first need to select the source computers (domain controllers or standalone servers) you want to include in the test environment, configure settings to create a virtual machine from each source computer, and then have the Active Directory® Virtual Lab create the test environment for you.

When creating virtual machines from the source computers, the Active Directory® Virtual Lab uses third-party virtualization software, such as Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), VMware ESX®, or VMware vCenter®. For a full list of supported virtualization software, see the System Requirements section in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory Release Notes.

You can configure virtualization settings to create virtual machines that maintain all the data available on the source computers, including Active Directory®, installed programs, and files. To manage the created virtual test environment, you need to use the tools provided by the virtualization software with which the Active Directory® Virtual Lab created the virtual machines in the test environment.
