Rapid economic justification

Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition offers rapid economic justification in Windows network environments, by dramatically decreasing the downtime and administrative overhead involved in Active Directory, AD LDS (ADAM), and Group Policy recovery.

Simplified restoration of an Active Directory forest

With the Forest Recovery Console, you can remotely manage the recovery of domain controllers in your forest from one central location.

Bare metal forest recovery

Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition automates recovery of an Active Directory forest from a Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) backup along with System State backup in case of physical corruption of all domain controllers, domain data or services, e.g. machine was attacked by ransomware, cannot start etc.

This feature is supported only for Windows Server 2008 R2 or higher domain controllers.

Granular, domain-level recovery

Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition 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.
