On Demand Recovery Current - User Guide

Restoring Application Proxy settings

On Demand Recovery supports the recovery of Application Proxy settings, Connector groups, and Connector group membership.

Supported scenarios

The following scenarios are supported in On Demand Recovery:

  • Restoring changes to Application Proxy configuration.
  • Restoring connector group membership if an Application Proxy is moved into another connector group.
  • If an Application Proxy is moved into another connector group and the previous connector group was deleted, On Demand Recovery puts the Application Proxy back to the connector group with the same name.
  • If an Application Proxy is put into another connector group and the previous connector group is deleted and there is no connector group with the same name, the new connector group with this name will be automatically recreated and the Application Proxy will be put into it.
Limitations

All of the Application Proxy settings can only be restored at once, granular restore of Application Proxy settings is not supported.

For details, see How does On Demand Recovery handle object attributes?

Backup and Restore of MFA Settings

On Demand Recovery supports backing up and restoring the following multifactor authentication (MFA) settings:

For more details, see the How does On Demand Recovery handle object attributes? section.

Note:

  • If a user that uses Microsoft Authenticator as an additional authentication method is permanently deleted, then all authentication methods for this user cannot be restored. On Demand Recovery does not restore binding of the application to the user.
  • On Demand Recovery does not restore user passwords.
Prerequisites

Backing up MFA settings is not enabled by default. You must select this option when configuring backup options.

To backup MFA settings

  1. Click Manage Backups on the Dashboard screen.
  2. Select the tenant from the list and click Edit.
    The Configure backup dialog opens.
  3. Select the Back up MFA settings, conditional access policies and data related to inactive mailboxes option and specify service account credentials for the tenant. The specified account must have at least one of the following roles in Azure portal; Exchange administrator or User administrator.
  4. Click Save.

Note:

  • It is possible to determine the scope of customer IP addresses that can access the customer Azure AD tenant using Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) conditional access. This option significantly reduces security risks and can be recommended for customers who want to backup MFA settings. For further information, contact Quest Support.
  • Multifactor authentication must be disabled for the On Demand Recovery service account or you should add On Demand Recovery IP addresses to the list of 'Trusted IPs'.

To configure Trusted IP settings

  1. Sign in to Azure portal.
  2. Go to Azure Active Directory > Security > MFA > Getting started.
  3. Click Additional cloud-based MFA settings under Configure.
  4. On the multi-factor authentication page, click service settings.
  5. In the trusted ips section, complete the following steps, under the Skip multi-factor authentication for requests from following range of IP address subnets heading, type the following IP addresses that correspond to your region:
    Region IP address
    US

    13.77.160.161

    13.66.244.155

    EU

    40.127.96.36

    40.69.87.171

    Canada

Restoring group licenses

On Demand Recovery restores group licenses, which means reassignment of a license to a group after its recreation or restore from the Recycle Bin. Granular restore of the assignedLicenses attribute is supported as well.

Supported scenarios

The following scenarios are supported by On Demand Recovery:

  • If a group is moved to the Recycle Bin, group licenses are restored simultaneously with the group object.
  • Direct and inherited licenses for users are now distinguished.
  • Inherited licenses are reassigned automatically by restoring membership.
  • If the licenseAssignmentStates attribute is not present in old backups, user object assignments in Azure AD are used to distinguish inherited and direct licenses.
  • The same logic is applied to the Differences report to show only one change if a group which is giving licenses was changed or deleted. In this case, the report will contain only the "Group change" or "Group deletion" action.
NOTE: If you are restoring a permanently deleted user from an old backup, the user license may be assigned twice; by group and directly.

Backup and Restore of Devices

On Demand Recovery can restore Azure AD device objects that were removed from the Azure Portal. For registered or joined devices, single sign-on (SSO) data (if any) is also restored.

Limitations

The following limitation exist when restoring devices in On Demand Recovery:

  • Automatically restoring SSO data for a device that was permanently deleted together with the device owner. In this case, the device owner should join the device once again.
  • If a device was unjoined by the device owner, it will be restored in the Azure Portal but SSO will not work.
Not supported

The following scenarios are not supported in On Demand Recovery:

  • Windows Hello for joined devices
  • Microsoft Intune is not supported
  • Restricted access for devices
  • Restoring of devices in hybrid configuration
  • Restoring devices to another tenant
Restored devices attributes
